difficult child is in Residential Treatment Center (RTC). Past year he has been in psychiatric hospital at least 4 times. Every time it was following an agrument with his girlfriend. She manipulates him. Familyfriends, support people, therapists, psychiatrists, and special services have all told him that this is an unhealthy relationship and he needs to stay away from her. His friends and kids of my friends all say she is a @itch. None of their advice is taken by him. Some examples of what she has done are- He played a varsity sport and had practice every day after school and could only see her after dinner and on weekends. She wanted him to quit. At first he wouldn't. Then she told him she was going to sign up for dance and they will have to break up because dance was every night. He was upset she wanted to break up so she got him to compromise that if she didn't sign up for dance, he'd quit the varsity sport. He was court ordered to attend an after school program 4 days a week. On our way there the first time, she calls him and says her dad said she could only see him one time between fri, sat, & sun. and could see him anytime mon, tues, wed, and thurs. She knew the program was until 8 at night. So she wanted to break up with him because she wouldn't see him much. He freaked and wanted me to turn around and take him home. He'd rather deal with court than lose her! I was able to get him to go into the bldg and talk to the counselor and start the next day instead. He entered Residential Treatment Center (RTC) a few months ago and found out she was dating someone else. When he spoke to her on the phone about it, she denied it. So, he told her to check her myspace page then! Her response was that she's only dating this guy until difficult child gets out of Residential Treatment Center (RTC)! Now difficult child comes home for part of sat. and sun. girlfriend spends the day with difficult child then at night is out with the other guy whom she says she broke up with. She ruined our birthday celebration for him by her spending it with the other guy and not even acknowledging it was difficult child's birthday. Anyone have suggestions how to handle this situation?
