          "My Sister Would Rather Be with Her Homeless Boyfriend in a Tent Than With Her Kids"

          October 14, 2016

          PLAYING “My Sister Would Rather Be with Her Homeless Boyfriend in a Tent Than With Her Kids”
          Grace claims her older sister, Katie, is an “out-of-control” and “neglectful” mother who would rather spend time with her homeless boyfriend, Doug, than her two kids. Grace, her mother, Tara, and  Katie’s ex-husband, Ray, say they have seen what they claim is Katie’s “erratic and unsafe behavior,” and Grace and Tara say they are ready to confront Katie once and for all. Grace, Tara and Ray all say they have considered legal action against Katie which could result in her losing any custody of her 6-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son if she does not begin to, as they say, “properly take care of herself and her kids.” Katie denies their claims and says she is a hard-working mother who is trying her best to take care of her children.
