My nephew has major issues. He touches his cousin inappropriatley, wears high heels, disrespects all authority and much more. He lives in a bad household with a drug addict mother and his grandparents (he and his addict mom lives with them) do nothing. Why? They say that they know he needs mental help but they just wont do it. Are they embarassed? What would cause someone to not want to help their child/grandchild. They have custody of him. He is 10. Please give me some insight on this. Thanks
PS I have talked with MIL about my concerns and she agrees. It upsets her that things are this way but yet again she does nothing but ignore it. Is it a form of denial? Why is denial OK when it comes to a childs life?

Maybe finances, or they do not know where to go, or may even be embarrassed.
