I have a 13 yo niece that is out of control. All with the approval of her mother. She smokes pot, claims to have sold pot, post half naked picture of herself on myspace, and is always in the streets. All before she turned 13 in June. She hangs out with a 17 yo high school girl. She had some guys in a car bring by my mom house to get some clothes. There is not enough space to put everything in here, but it is terribly bad. My sister thinks because my neice is happy with her ghetto life that she is a "Good Mom". I just don't know what to do to help her, Should I call Child Protective Services? It would tear my family apart, but she is headed in the wrong direction and she is barely 13yo!! I just want to cry! How can both parents just turn the other cheek? If something is not done she is going to end up a drug addicted pregnant teenager. And some 18 yo will not know she was 13 and will go to jail. Advice? Stay out of it?Answer Question

Our father is a lawyer. I am thinking of asking him to help me take my sister to court for custody oh her.. This may be the best answer. It may hard at first, given the life she is accustomed to living, and I am sure it will take lots of patience on your part, but THANK YOU for being willing to help a child so obviously desperately in need of guidance. God bless!
