          March 18, 2018

          Anna says her niece, Emmy, is destroying her life. According to the teen’s mom, Alma, Emmy is drinking and smoking marijuana, disobeys rules and has been kicked out of two schools in two years. Anna says she partly blames Alma for Emmy’s behavior.

          “My 16-year-old niece, Emmy, is screaming for attention from her mother,” Anna says. “Alma doesn’t take responsibility for her actions in Emmy’s behavior. Alma isn’t the best mother; she has not provided the structure and discipline to raise a child.”
