Crisis pregnancy centers offer parenting classes and if a woman attends them she will usually earn points or tickets of some sort to get some much needed items, like clothing for the child etc. so that provides incentive to go to class. There is a center in Katy that you can look up online and call and talk to about it, if they don't offer exactly what you need they may be able to direct you somewhere. It does sound like your niece needs some parenting even more than the two year old. She moved into your home and is now under your authority and must flow into the way your house functions. I wouldn't change one thing about how you cook etc because she needs to get up and take care of her child as I know you realize. You are a pro mama with five kiddos, I would treat her like number six. What would you do with your own child who was sleeping in all day, shirking responsibilities, staying up super late and making noise so no-one could sleep? She may not be your child but she is under your rule while she lives there. It sounds from her schedule that she has no job. So is she paying any rent etc? This young woman has found herself in a tough situation being such a young mom and has to learn responsibility fast. No-one is doing her a favor letting her get away with things because at the end of the day you will all go on with your lives and she will be left a single mama without the skills she needs to handle life. Some tough love is really in order for her sake. I mean she could work at a local gym in the childcare facility and take her little one with her, I knew lots of moms who did that when I was going to a local gym. Then she could pay a little rent, have a little money and she would have to get that boy up but he would have some playmates etc. Or working at a daycare is an option as well, somewhere where she could take her little one and not have to pay childcare. Anyway, I think I would have a heart to heart with her and tell her that if she wants to live with you she will be expected to attend whatever parenting classes you find, get a job, have baby on the schedule of the house and pay x amount of rent by x date. Then I would give her suggestions on how to accomplish these things because she is young and does need help, but if she didn't do it, she would have to go. This isn't your child and she has to step up and take responsibility for him or suffer terrible consequence later. I do think it is great that you have opened your home to her and I don't think this problem is horrible, I think it is typical and with some guidance it can be solved. Best wishes, and merry christmas!
