I am in a situation where my friends mom is an alcoholic, they have had to do an intervention and call her doctor to have a family council about getting her help. She has a 9 year old sister that she fears is going to end up in DSS custody because of it, and I told her to talk to the childs father, and she said that he might not want to help in the situation for his own selfish reasons. At this point, I told her that she needs to deal with what comes up that day, and stop stressing about the what ifs. I can't get involved, I refuse to. However, I am her best friend and I am who she turns to, but I can't let it stress me out too. Her mother is toxic...and needs help. She can't worry about DSS if her moms going to do worse to that child than 6 months of being in a safe environment. What would you do if you were in this situation?Answer Question
