      You must reset your password (even if you know it's the right one) before you can sign into the community. Thanks to the upgrade, there's an issue with passwords and signing in. The good news is that you can click here: http://community.grandparents.com/index.php?/lostpassword/ to change your password (it'll let you reuse your old one). If you can't reach the email address connected to your account then please contact the admin at latoya@grandparents.com and I'll help you sort it out.

The neighbor is near the IL's.  I did not know they lived their until our SIL's sister told me they got her out of the house to a Battered women's shelter.  I was not sure what I was hearing was true, so I took a ride over to the neighbor and spoke with her.  The neighbor confirmed everything our SIL's sister told me.  Our SIL's sister told me her parents are toxic.  Everything with their children needs to evolve around them.  They are wanting the grandchildren to do the same.  These IL's are controlling, manipulative and overwhelming and remember live next door. They have screwed up almost every holiday as everything evolves around them.  We feel our daughter doesn't have a choice being that her husband is verbally abusive if she does not do what he says. This is how our daughter has become but that seems an off and on thing with her. 

What an absolute heartache and worry for you.  It's like watching a train wreck and feeling totally helpless to stop it.  if you haven't done this already it might help if you went and had a talk with someone at the domestic vilolence shelter.  I had a friend who did this and she was given tips and advice on how to deal with this in a way that provided a safety net for her daughter even she lost contact. She was also given advice on how to start keeping a journal and write  down dates and time and types of abuse ( just in case of a custody fight) .
