Good advice kitty50. There are so many resources available to parents these days and most agencies aren't quick to judge at all if a couple or one parent goes in for counseling or help. This mother may be suffering from a major postpartum depression that could be remedied with counseling or even a prescription. For the child's sake, it is worth nudging this mom into some healthy help.

I think one of the hardest things for a Grandma to know when to barge in and when to butt out.

I say yes. I'm a grandmother raising 2 of my 13 grandchildren. I'm on a few grandparents groups too. It is great to talk to other grands.

Default Grandma is sad

Not sure how this works as I have never posted or rarely even read forums of this type. Sorry if I somehow misuse or offend anyone as that is not my intention.I live with my daughter, her boyfriend and 3 granchildren under 3 years of age. At this point I feel I can do nothing right by my daughter and communication is so bad she has threatened to throw me out. I have cared for 2 grandaughters while she works, done housework, laundry, dishes and alot of caring even when she is not working and she now has 2 week old son and plans to go back to work. I love these girls dearly; have done my best but it never seems good enough. I don't want to get close to the new baby boy to. I feel so sad, alone & misunderstood. I feel trapped and have somehow got lost.

What do you think? should we have a forum or sub-forum?

While in the grandparents forum (subforum of parenting) click "new thread" and type your story. People aren't likely to see it here in this thread.

because there is a grandparents forum (we are in it) and the poll is 4 years old.

When people create polls, they can set a time for it to expire. It closed of its own accord.
