....WITH YOUR difficult child. I need some advice before I agree with this, so please shed some light with your advice. After easy child let me know that difficult child brought drugs in our home, I have tried to keep easy child from hanging around with him and his buddies. It got to the point the last time he was here that he was forbidden to ride in her car even. She has always loved her bro and he being the difficult child that he is would take advantage of her. Taking her things, borrowing money never to be paid back, talking her into doing something she knows better than to do. He would intimidate her at times as well. She seems to have a very good understanding of what I am having to do at this time as far as detaching. She also was very close to her bro and worries about him and she still loves him very much. That being said.... She saw him at the store by our house last night. She said he looked bad. She was clearly upset at seeing him that way. I convinced her to call her therapist and talk with her about how she felt. Her therapist suggested she meet with him to talk. Well, I am not really sure what I think about this. I want to do what is best for easy child but he is still using. I have filed a report with the police that keeps him from coming here since he broke into the house. I guess they could meet at a restaurant or something?? My fear is he is getting further to the end of his rope. Tomorrow he has to pay po 200 dollars, he is certainly not above trying to get easy child to give him money. What would you do???
