My cousin Lisa is 22. She has 2 boys from a previous relationship,2 and 10 months old. She lost the older boy in '09 due to the fact that she wasn't feeding him. She was giving him water and juice ONLY at 6 months old! In court she was told that she needed to get her GED,a job,her own place,and take parenting classes. Well its 1 1/2 years later,and all she's done was the parenting classes. She had her youngest son in April of last year. he's being fed,not as well as he should be,but it hasn't raised any red flags at WIC yet,but most likely will very soon. He's fallen from the 48th percentile,to the 22nd in 3 months.
Since she had her son last year,she's slept with 11 guys. The baby daddy is in prison for retail theft,and for beating her up last October.
All she wants to do is go out drinking and party. She goes out,no fooling,5-6 days a week. She'll leave at 4-5pm one day,and come home at 7-8 am the next day. Her mom enables her to keep doing this.She doesn't care about her kids. I'm 100% sure that she'll never get her older son back. She's had all this time to get her shit together and she refuses to do it.
I get so frustrated seeing her FB statuses where she says "going to the bar tonight,gonna be a blast!" Come on! Its THURSDAY! Get a fucking job and take care of your kids!!
Why do these young women do this? How can you just piss all over your child's life and feel no remorse? And in case you're wondering. Me taking her kids is not an option. been there,tried that. Next step is adoption after her rights are revoked.

Hearing this makes me so sick & sad. It breaks my heart because children don't deserve this. They deserve the very best from their parents unconditional love,care,protection. She does not deserve to have have children & be a mother & should of got her tubes tied a long time ago.

Water and juice only! Holy crap! I try so hard to not judge and be straight forward with my answers but come on, she doesn't have common sense period. I know that it must be extremely frustrating for you but these aren't your decisions. You have to remind yourself that her decisions are her own. You will go crazy otherwise. I'm sorry that you have to watch that, hugs~

I'm with Melody77 call CPS and tell them what is going on. Its all about the best interest of the children and in a situation like this they need to be in a better environment than this...
