My mother is having some troubles with my 9 year old brother and it's stressing her out....she joked with me that she might send him to live with me for a little while...we live in a different city so he would have to switch schools but one of the problems is that he is constantly getting into fights at school (my mother, father and the rest of my brothers and sister are black and he is white and the kids talk about him and tease him...he was placed in her home as an emergency placement when he was 8 months old and my mother fell in love with him and decided to adopt him once he had been with us for a year) Anyways my mom is now serious and is ready to have him live with me for a bit....I talked to DH and he doesnt have a problem with this, but now I'm starting to wonder if I can handle a 9 yr old boy plus my 4 yr old daughter, plus Im due in June.....I'm not sure anymore...I definatly want to help my mother out but....I guess I'm just wondering if I can....do it lol I'm confused and a little nervous. Any suggestions on how to handle a 9 yr old who fights? PLEASE NO BASHING
