Yes Liz,
It does seem you need to set some boundaries around your younger daughter’s demands to avoid further enabling!
As a mother I know how difficult that is especially since you are in a position to help her. As CGs we know all about manipulation and emotional blackmail.
Maybe being stranded and feeling the consequences of her actions is what your daughter needs.
I suppose us mothers will always feel protective towards our children but I think there might also be an element of control in mother/child relationships. We need to be aware of our reasons for doing what we do. I made many mistakes with my sons. One in particular. He is not too slow to blame me for the mess he now finds himself in!
Your grandson seems like a very loving boy! Hope his arm heals!
I have no grandchildren but I love my nieces’/nephews’ children.
