I am totally blown away by this. My sister just divorced, its not even final yet. She has serious emotional problems, anxiety and chronic depression, both requiring medication. She has full custody of their three kids. One has severe autism, is non vocal and becoming violent. She doesn't have a job, and isn't looking for one. Her kids are rude, loud and destructive to say the least. They have no respect for anything or anyone. Her idea of parenting is to say "no" until they ask a few more times, then "Fine!! Take it!!" and she spends all day screaming herself hoarse at them. They are 6, 5 and 3.
She just told me that she thinks having another baby will be the best thing in the world for her kids, both for their attitudes and her views on life. She ISN'T pregnant, nor likely to become so, since she isn't "seeing" anyone, buy where in the HELL does somebody with 3 kids she can't support or parent, who is getting state assistance just to feed her kids, living for free in her parents basement, and completely emotioanally miserable get the idea that adding another child to the situation is not just a good idea, but the BEST idea??!!!
