          Couple Says They Blame Daughter-In-Law For Many Of Granddaughter’s Problems

          “Brittney does not respect authority,” Ben says. “I have witnessed her many times calling her mother by her first name. I have seen her yell at her father violently, very loud.”

          Linda adds, “Brittney is a very spoiled brat. I don’t know why she got that way.”

          Linda and Ben’s son, Tim, is married to Brittney’s mom, Kimber, whom they say they partially blame for Brittney’s behavior.

          “All the problems with Brittney has something to do with her mother,” Linda says. “I really think she uses her mental problems to get lots of attention.”

          “I think that Kimber has torn my family apart by her lack of parenting,” Ben says. “I know that Kimber has psychiatric problems. Some days, I am sorry for her. On some days, I just want to knock the hell out of her because I think she needs to just wake up.”

          Linda and Ben say Tim and Kimber have been “poor parents,” and they worry for their granddaughter’s future. “If Brittney doesn’t change, I don’t what is going to happen to her and that is my greatest fear,” Ben shares.
