How would YOU react to your family calling CPS on you? *edited*
I am so done with forgiving and forgetting my shitty family. Long story short my brother was encouraging my teen to do things behind my back. He came into my sons life after many years and excessivly started hanging out with him. My son began having behaviour issues....dangerous ones. I grounded my son, and my brother proceeded to sneak money,phones and outings . He has no respect for me as a parent and is a 37 yr old kid.
He questioned my DD on his grounding behind my back and apparently my family felt the need to discuss my parenting behind my back in front of my DD. They all think im being unreasonable. Without getting into too much detail my sons issues include lying,stealing and dangerous sexual situations. I have put him in therapy and have gotten his school and the city police involved.Im doing all I can to help him. My family thinks otherwise. They think im too hard on him and should let him do whatever he wants.Yes, I have posted about this before.
Anyways not too long ago my son ran away. Its obvious he went right to my brothers house.....which is about an hour away. I called my mom right away and her response was "a kid can only take so much punishment" Here I am worried about my son, and she takes the time to be a bitch. It was obvious she knew where he was. My brother ended up bringing him to the police station after I got upset with my mom and brought the police to my brothers house. He was home but not answering. Shortly after we got home I got a phone call from the police to come pick him up from the station. I had 4 different stories of what happened and where exactly my son was. I still dont know the true story.
My son told me he got scared when my brother called CPS. And he knew that was when he should come home . I talked to my brother and asked him about it,. He admitted to calling. Of course he had nothing. They told him to take the runaway home . I am so fucking pissed. But people just expect me to just forgive and forget, Just give in. My aunt came into town. I take her out to eat and what happens? My brother shows up. Im so tired. None of this probably makes any sense.
in a nutshell my family has no respect for me. The End
Edit: what makes it even more difficult is that my dad is innocent in all of this, He has a hard time understaing , he has some brain damage. Its like he is being punished. And i dont know how to go about getting them out of my lives but keeping my dad. My kids are 17 and 18 yrs old. They will be making their own decisions.But I also have a baby. And my DH doesnt want him around my crazy family as well. I dont blame him. Okay, now im rambling again. It seems easy just to say "fuck off, I dont want to see you anymore.Stay out of our lives" Its complicated and messy. UGH!
