I am raising my teens, and 1 teen has a baby. I really want to be able to help her get on her feet, and be independent and self sufficient. I am having a hard time knowing how to parent a teen parent. DDMOM is 17, has no job, doesn't do much housework, and says it's not fair if I give her younger sister anything that I don't give her. Sibling rivaly has always been a problem between the 2, and I try to give equally. However, I have spent thousands on legal bills for DDMOM, and I am responsible for all the baby's (10 mo) needs, furniture, clothes, diapers, food, medical. I love my grandson, I am receiving legal custody soon due in part to her bad decisions, part her inability(unwillingness) to get or keep a job. She has a GED, but flunked out of the classes in college she said she wanted.( didn't do much of the work even when I offered to help her study) Should I treat DDMom as a normal teen, and hand her money as I would her sister?(16 yo hs grad, going to college in August)
