“Tina’s daughter’s issues stem from a lack of parenting,” Colleen claims. She says that when Marie was an infant, she and Tina lived with Colleen, and Tina was supposed to help take care of Colleen’s children. “Tina was allowing my daughter to engage in drinking and smoking,” claims Colleen.

Colleen claims Tina and Marie then moved from home to home, and Tina was jobless. “Tina says that she cannot get a job or find stable housing because of her daughter’s behavior, but I believe that’s an excuse,” Colleen says. “It’s time for Tina to take responsibility, grow up and become a mother.”
