My adult daughter has been a drug user most of her life. I had custoday of her 5 year old for almost a year but she has since gotten her back. I believe right now she is not using drugs. She does run through quite a bit of men having them live in the house and I have tried to get her to cut this out for the sake of her daughter as well as for herself. So far its not helping. Every time she breaks up with a guy her personaily becomes mean and I mean MEAN and somewhat abusive to those who are close to her , me and her daughter. She has been screaming at her daughter and even hurt her the other day physically. I know I could and should report her but the story is that if I do. I dont really believe they would remove the child from her home, and my daughter would know it was me if I gave them as much information as I would like to. I mean the world to this child and I cant risk my daughter pulling her out of my life. She calls me her "God". I may do something at some point but I`am not ready yet. The reason I`am writting is I`am afraid she is taking on more than she can chew starting next week. Two jobs which she has to have as well as a class. The stress might become worse for her so I`am afaird but I will cross that bridge when I get there. The thing is right now she is feeling sorry for herself and is not cooking meals because she thinks she is so busy.and this little girl is in camp all day and in the pond or pool and wearing sunscreens and bug sprays. I asked her if she has bathed her. Her reply is, I dont have time to bath her every night anymore! I was disgusted.. I said you use to. She was, when she had a boyfriend, now that the guy isnt around she doesnt seem to care about the little girl. What I want to know is am I being too critical or is that neglect. She does bath her but not like she use to. I do it almost everytime she is at my house though because she has been at camp or in the water or has lotion on her.
