Son and DIL are horrible parents!
Only grand is 5 and lives a few blocks from me. I babysit him 6 days a week and keep him more hours than I am required to because he hates going home. They spank him and yell all the time. They are too busy playing video games and being online to play with him. They sit him in front of the TV all the time. I don't sleep from worry. I fight with them all the time about the way they parent. Neither were raised that way though the DIL was not well liked by her parents but her brothers were very bonded with them. They spend time with their son's kids but not much with their daughter's child. I love this boy more than life itself! I never spank or yell at him. I have no friends anymore because I want to be available to him all the time if he needs me. If I call over there and they kids sound grumpy I go over and play with my grandson. They don't mind at all which is a good thing. My biggest fear is what would happen if I died or something. He wouldn't have me to protect him.
