i posted about this in another group
simply put, everytime my niece goes to my dad's, she shows up with lice. this has happened 5 times now. today was the worst. she had a headful of nits, bugs, and sores where the poor baby had been scratching.
my dad treats it and it's gone when she leaves. but when her mom brings her back, she's got it again, each time worse than before.
i told my dad something's got to be done. my brother is in jail, so obviously the father having custody is out of the question. my dad and stepmom have petitioned the court for emergency custody because her mother is such a POS. however, apparently it takes more than a few cases of head lice and a nasty ass house to get the courts to listen
but this time, it's bad. if she's got sores like that, then surely it constitutes as child neglect, right?
i think my dad needs to try to get custody of this little girl again. matter of fact, i'm in the middle of writing my brother and telling him what's going on. i don't know what all he can do from prison, but he needs to know what his little girl is going through.
i'm at the point where i don't give a fuck how her mother feels. she's nasty, has lice herself and refuses to try other methods because she "doesn't want to ruin her hair". she can be a nasty piece of ass all she wants, but when she lets my niece get the same way, that's where we have a problem
