your living with your parents and have a kid? YDI...put a rubber on it
Does it matter? It's not like the dog or your 2 year old sister is going to command you around anyway. No matter what, your mum and dad are still above you (as they should be) and then there's you, because your pet and sibling is irrelevant.
Hmm 14, i see. I thought it said Mckinly was the sister. So I'm guessing OP still lives with her parents then. And OP is most probably a teenage mother? Bloodygore, IKR? glad I don't have a little sister :) or any sisters for that matter =P 3 brothers for the win xD and i think OP is a girl, hence her username.
I have lived in a house where myself and Mr. Doe were second-class citizens after the pets. One particular dog had some serious training issues, and was allowed to do whatever he wanted. Trust me, it was hell. We moved out a year ago, see the family at least weekly, and we're still trying to repair those relationships. I can't imagine trying to be a parent in OP's situation. Her daughter is given free reign, it seems. I'm sure a two year old can sense that she has no authority, even over the pets. How effective can she really be as a parent in that situation?
Jane, you are all over this. A child should not be the ultimate authority figure in a household. There is no scenario in which a dog should come before a human, no matter how annoying the human is or how upset one is with said human. The OP also has the additional long term problem of her daughter being treated like a queen and the OP being treated worse than the dog. The daughter will pick up on this; "I run this house and my mother isn't even as good as Charlie the dog." This will make living on their own someday very difficult, with a demanding, princess of a daughter who has been in a home where she outranks her mother. How do you turn that Titanic around? The OP's parents are obviously angry with her over this situation but they are doing their granddaughter no favors by spoiling her and essentially demonstrating to her that her mother is garbage.
Think about it, they are your parents, they will always be in charge of you whilst you are in their house. Your daughter (I'm not going to comment on the name) is in charge because kids are demanding and require a lot of work, the house probably does follow her lead for the simple reason that she is a very small kid. The dog, well, that was either a joke, or your Dad giving you one hell of a hint.
'Gore, we don't know how she got pregnant (the name says Katie, I'm guessing the OP is a girl, and shall use this assumption in the rest of my comments, most of the scenarios can be reversed if this is untrue), if we think she is an unresponsive girl who got herself pregnant then we are making a big assumption. We could also assume that she was responsible and had to move back in with her parents for financial reasons, or maybe she got raped? We don't know. However, I shall heed your request and comment on the name: McKinley? Is that a pet name for your daughter or her real name? This does lead me to think that people assuming you are a teen mum are correct, OP.
Well, grandchildren always rule grandparents, and you're the one who got knocked up without being able to support yourself. So..I see no problem with this list..
