My sister lives out of state and has a rocky marriage but refuses to come home. Well she called me last night crying that she made a mess of her life. Recently he has been telling my sister "take this chore of a child from me, Im done with him, I cant take him anymore" My bro in law is a piece of crap who has a piss poor job while my sister works hers ass off doing all the responsibilites of a wife as well as working extra hours for more money on her 7am-7pm shift at the hospital. Is it possible that he is neglecting my 3 month old nephew in the middle of the night because he cant stand him? My sister is worried about her kids but wont leave him....what do I do to help her? Her hubby has a temper... is it possible his temper and his hatred for the baby could make him hurt the baby one night or take it out on my 2yr old niece even though he has no problem with her?
Please help. I need any advice or suggestions. Im so worried!

Wow. You can't force someone to "wake up". They either care enough to get themselves out of a situation like that or they don't. My sister is in a similar situation except the children aren't hers, they are his. And he still doesn't want them. I would call CPS to be honest. If she isn't going to be strong enough to stick up for her own children, then I would myself. I'm so sorry that I can't offer any more advice or help on it. I'm lost.

Okay, I'm thinking as I'm rereading, lol. Is it possible that he is just venting but doesn't really mean anything by it? Like sometimes I'll say "my kids are driving me freaking nuts" but in reality, I'm fine, just needing to vent. Still though, saying they are a "burden". That is what has me upset about that situation. Thats pretty harsh.
