My daughter has a child. She was very young when she became pregnant. She was 18 years old. Her husband is a year older then her. At first I was against that marriage, not because of him, he is a great young man, but because they were too young for parents. Now the problem appears. They have problem nurturing the child. It is very molly-coddled. He screams a lot demanding everything. How can I help them?

Maybe you should not be so worried. It is normal for the little child to act like that. Of course there are limits in that kind of behavior. Young parents are usually unprepared for educating youngsters. Perhaps you should use your authority and experience to help them educate this child. Or you could make them realize that they need professional consulting if the problem is too severe. Enjoy your position of young grandmother.

Becareful about meddling in your daughters life like you are thinking of. It could cause problems between your relationship and make her less able to feel confidant about raising a family of her own. Don't be the "authority" with her or her husband, that will only cause problems in and of itself.

Your experience and wisdom is something she will come to seek if she feels she is able. Else learning is the only way we become good parents. Suggest something to do with her, such as a class in parenting or home safety, or offer to do something with her that will open the lines of the communication. None of us make great parents the first time, we learn with our children, just as we teach them they teach us.
