Hi - I am new here - have been on forums before (BiPolar (BP)) re. my daughter. Am here right now because I am just so tired of everything and scared. I will say more about my family later - I am just really glad to have found a site that "rings true". And I am so sorry about the Mom who has the 14 yo in trouble. A big hug to you. This weekend my ds went "over the top" stealing money from his sister's closet and lighting a fire to "fix" the door that he broke in her room. "Fire" may be too strong - he lit a match and burned a toy. Both kids are under the care of a child pschy. - who is "ok"; teaches child and adolescent pschy. to residents at a well-known medical school - but my kids don't respond to her very well. Both kids are not seeing individual counselors right now - we have in the past; my budget was devastated (ex does not send $$ on reg. basis). Must get them back asap to individual counselors. Enough said - I have to say that I really feel for the Mom with-the 14 yo - and honestly admit grave fear that we will be there sooner than later - a very negative view - I try not to 'go there' but the signs are right in my face. Thank you, if you read this.
