Never one to keep her opinions to herself, Janeece gives the school’s senior staff a serious headache this week. When she picks up Year 10 pupil – and teen mum – Billie Taylor on her way to school, she notices that Billie’s mother, Laura, is acting as the child’s primary carer. Concerned that Laura is trying to take the baby away from Billie, Janeece defies the advice of Chris and Adanna and urges Billie to fight for her maternal rights. The result? A clash between mother and daughter, not to mention major confusion over who has the baby’s best interests at heart. In Karen’s absence, how can the situation be resolved?
