Teenagers and Babies
So...my husband and I are currently fostering to adopt a six week old. I have an almost 18 year old stepdaughter who is great with babies and is a great help. But sometimes I think that she thinks this is HER baby. I encourage her to help and I allow her to keep the baby in her room one night per week because I know how much she loves babies and wants to help. Tonight I heard her on the phone with someone saying “She is like MY baby and I’M the one who takes care of her.” How can I establish healthy boundaries with my teenager?
