difficult child 1 is at x's house this weekend, and that has prompted a conversation with difficult child 3 about x and difficult child 1. difficult child 1 has told difficult child 3 that he is going to run away to x's house. I don't know how serious difficult child 1 is about this. He could've been saying things to try to hurt difficult child 3, or to Manipulate difficult child 3 into doing his work. I don't think he could pull it off without help because he just doesn't function that well. I told husband about this. His response was that if difficult child 1 does decide to go live with x that for the sanity of our family difficult child 1 won't be allowed to change his mind and come back. He also won't allow difficult child 1 to visit. I wouldn't have contact with difficult child 1 until he is 18 and out from under x's rule. I'm a mess right now. Just thinking about it. I can't think straight.
