If your child had a disorder where they had to be watched ALL the time or they could get violent and kill someone.. would you put them in a home or would you keep them with you?

  • way as bad as all this sounds, and as much of a crisis situation as we've been in, I still have a very good life, and so do my children....he has been my teacher in a lot of ways....made me who I am, and proud to be....we also have very good days together...he enjoys the outdoors, so we spend many times hiking....we now also have a golden retriever who keeps him calm regularly and his violence has reduced greatly....if however he struck the dog, please be assured we would find a better home for her...but this has not been the case...quite the opposite actually....

  • As a child, with me. If they got so big that I couldn't physically restrain them is need be, I might try a home.

  • I agree with the above answer. You can't watch someone ALL the time. It's just not feasible. And it is not safe or fair to you or the kid.

  • No one can answer that unless they were in their shoes. What a horrible decision to have to make.

  • I agree with BradenIsMySon. I would never send my child to a home where they would most likely be neglected or mistreated. But if the problem wasn't under control by the time he hit adulthood and I was no longer safe or able to control him, I may find an alternative method of care for him.
