my brother was kicked out of 3 daycares. some kids are tough to get in line, don't want to fuck with one kid's social development because the other is wild.


Fair. It seemed odd to me, but I suppose that's a logical explanation. TY. Is your brother still an asshole?


no, he turned out way better than me. weird, huh?

I don't have kids so I try not to judge other people's parenting skills/decisions. So I will defer to the smart people here (yes I actually do think most of the people here are pretty smart...I did say most) and ask if I am being too harsh in my opinion.

#1 - My gf's sisters daughter is 12 or 13 and "gets anxiety" and doesn't like to be around people. So her mom, to protect her little angel, has taken her out of school and is home schooling her. She has been failing every proficiency test she has taken. She refuses to go to school or counseling and mom thinks this is totally ok. I think this will end up with her doing tricks at Sam's town in Vegas (for those not familiar with Vegas that is not a good thing) and ultimately her body being found in a shallow grave in the desert.

My take - Make the kid go to school and learn how to be a real person. Most kids hate school. She is not really dysfunctional at family gatherings, just a little weird.

#2 - My gf's brother is 45 had a bad heroin habit (is there a good heroin habit?), has been living with his mom for 4 years and stayed clean and had a job repairing high end appliances (for Bosch I think) making $60k or so a year. He has unravelled a bit over the past 6 months, got a dui a few months ago and there are some signs he is on the smack again, at Christmas it looked like he hadn't taken a shower and he nodded off at the table after dinner but said he was tired and needed coffee.

My take - You are 45 and living with your mom?

#3 - My sisters kid 24 yo son that has had heroin issues for a few years. He has been clean for about a year and a half. He currently lives with mom, doesn't have a job and plays video games all day and my sister supports him.

My take - Get the fuck out and get a job. He will likely be the one that kills #1 after she trys to up-charge him for swallowing.

That in a nutshell is a small part of my family.

Oh, and I forget to add the the former wife of one of the gf's other brother is in jail, we just learned that on Christmas day. Not sure what the charges are yet.

This one's difficult. Tough to paint with a broad brush. There are some kids out there with absolutely crippling anxiety to the point where they can't function, or maybe it pairs with depression causing a potentially dangerous situation. I don't want to say that it's definitely an overreaction. However there are kids and parents who use the anxiety as a crutch. Maybe they medicate their kids in an effort to make them easier to deal with. Could be anywhere on that scale. However, I will say that if school is out then counseling is critical. Can't just let it slide. I've heard of lots of kids seeing a combination of therapists and psychiatrists and racking up $1K of bills a month easy.

i have pretty bad anxiety and suffered for years without diagnosis. now i understand how and what it is, and i treat mine with a combination of therapy and medication. if her daughter is suffering to the point where she is having trouble going to school she needs to go to an inpatient psych hospital for a stay until her doctors can get it under control or intensive outpatient program for treatment for a few weeks to learn how to manage her condition. right now she's refusing treatment and refusing to go to school and that is not acceptable.

I'm not advocating for forcibly medicating the child in any way shape or form, but if she's suffering to the point where she allegedly can't go to school then it's highly likely that she's probably going to need medication.

your sister should lay the choices out for her. either she checks until the hospital for intensive psychiatric treatment, or begins regular behavioral therapy and resumes school.

i have been on pretty much every anti anxiety med on the market and recommend what I'm on now which is called buspar, but if you have any other questions feel free to ask me.

Thanks FTT and MB. What you said is the same as the counselor that the mom is taking to. If she won't go to school she has to go to therapy. If she won't go to therapy than it the inpatient route. This is all complicated by the fact that mom is divorced and the dad isn't really around and the mom has some significant health issues of own so she doesn't work and is on some sort of public assistance and has no money. A shitty situation all around.

That is tough. A lot of otherwise good health plans are shitty covering therapy costs.

if she's on ssi or ssdi public her daughter can probably use obamacare/medicaid/SCHIP for her psych hospital stay so long as she's a minor.

it is imperative that she get this taken care of and under control while the state will still cover it because after age 18 it's going to be much more expensive and difficult to handle as the daughter will have to do it on her own likely without insurance or high deductible minimum coverage.
