My dear hormonal daughter is having adjustment problems. New 5 yr old brother 8 months ago. She adores him and it's mutual. MIL came for a long term visit about a month ago. Son is sleeping on futon in daughter's room d/t Grandma taking his room. Daughter is upset about sharing her room (understandable). We've been looking for a new house for a long time. Well, now the MIL is going to be living with us permenently. She has cancer that is currently in remission, but the Dr's say it will come back. Colon metastasized to liver. Grandma has lived out of state so she's not close with the Grandkids. She's very close to Great grandkids who lived close to her. Talks about them all the time. Daughter is (understandably) jealous. Mad about looking for a new house because she doesn't want to leave her friends who live across the street. Hubby and I are making certain we give her lots of one-on-one time each. But her world is turned upside-down. Any advice? I feel so bad for my girl, but the new brother was a family decision which she was very much a part of and Grandma has no place else to go. So what do I do to help her adjust to these changes?
