  1. HELP !!!! Now that I have that off my chest let me ask: We have adopted our three grandchildren ages 12, 10, 8 all girls.
    We have had them living with us for most of their young life. Then four years ago we adopted them. Our daughter and her husband has a drug problem. We have had most of the normal problems but there are some that I don’t know how to handle.
    All of the girls were born addicted to the drug of choice that she was taking while carring them. I have problems with back talk, telling us that they hate us, down right fights. I can tell you honestly that I hate my life. If I new then what I new now I don’t know if I would have taken them. I love them with all my heart but my husband is 56 and I am 55 and this is not were we thought we would be at this time in our lives. If I only new what to do with the (I hate you) when they don’t get there way. The 8 year old in now back talking so bad that she will have the last word or die. They do well in school and the teachers say that they don’t have a problem with any of them. It is really just me. I am at my whitts end. If you can’t help me I don’t know what to do. I am so very tired.

    Thank you,
    Tenna

    • Tenna – How brave of you to take your grandkids on. I am saddened by how many grandparents are doing this. Total Transformation program works well for getting some of these disrespectful behaviors in order. And they have a great hotline you can call to get on the spot help. Also check into Attachment.org. It has some excellent resources. Get yourself into a support group with other grandparents with adopted kids. No one understands better than someone who is going through it.
      But mostly take care of yourselves. Set up respite (esp a weekend or longer) with someone who supports your parenting style. Your marriage is most important. Don’t feel guilty, that is worse thing you can do for them. You are awesome. Stay in touch. Julie
