See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My mother just called me and my nephew last night had the worst violent outbreak he's EVER had. He was choking his sister, they all had to lock themselves in a bedroom to call 911 while he destroyed the house, screamed obscenities and tried to break the door down to get to them. He then ran out of the house as he heard the police and ambulance coming and my brother chased him down and pinned him to the ground until the authorities could handcuff him and take him away.
This child is only 13 and this is the 4th time he's been taken to a mental ward and they tell my mother on the phone this morning: 'we're not looking at residential care right now'. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This kid is extremely violent, she's scared that he's going to kill them and other people but because Government medical assistance right now, they keep shoving him back out into society when he clearly doesn't belong there. It's going to take him actually killing someone to get the help he needs.
My mother is done. She says her only option now is to just give him up into state custody and be done with it. If they let him out again and he hurts people, it's on their heads, not hers because she's done everything she can.
It just pisses me off that this little boy needs help and he's been fucked over time and again and is falling through the cracks and you mark my words- if he's let out and not kept in an institution, you will be hearing about him on the news one day. That's so damn horrible to even say about my own nephew but it's true. There are many more children out there just like him and many parents in the same situation as my mother is and something HAS to be done about this...
