She doesn't want her daughter anymore...

I have an acquaintance that I sometimes talk to on facebook... She just told me that she doesn't want her daughter anymore! What the hell do I say to that? I cannot relate with someone like this.

  • Are you sure she's not joking?

  • I cannot imagine what you can say, however I would atleast try and find out why or what is going on. She reached out to you for a reason. She may need some support or may be going through some tough times, never a reason to not want your child but every circumstance differs.

  • I don't know what her deal is. But she's not joking. She said that she just can't do it anymore. I guess she is having problems getting her to listen. SHe doesn't have any help. I told her I would watch her daughter when I could... but I don't really know her that well. I am worried about her little girl.

  • You have every right to be worried. Especially if she does not have any help maybe she is feeling overwhelmed. Your offering to watch her daughter is a great idea. Right now it seems she needs your help and support.

  • I know a guy who married a woman with a kid. Then she left him and left her kid there. Now he is raising a child that isn't even his. So I guess there are women out there who could just leave their own flesh and blood.

  • It is making me sick. I just went in and gave my daughter a hug (she was asleep). I am shaking. I just called my friend (that I know this girl through). She says that she has a support system. I have offered 3 times just this week to watch ehr daughter. She keeps posting things on facebook like "I'm serious gunna hurt my kid...I need help I need for her to leave me...." "i jus really hate my life...i wish i wasnt even born!!!!" "I need help....I need someone to talk to...... what's wrong w me"

  • Good luck ...she needs help. I hope you can help her. She has low self esteem and depression,obviously. I bet she was abused and demeaned at one time....she doesn't like herself. I feel sorry for her and I hope things get better.
