What would you like to do?
Protecting Child from Abusive Mother Contact your local agency that protects children. Some states call it CPS: Child Protective Serves or Department of Children and Fa…milies or Children and Youth Services or whatever your state calls it. File a complaint of suspected child endangerment or abuse; many times you don't have to give your name. You may be saving a child from a terrible situation. GOOD LUCK... P.S. Look in the colored pages of your phonebook (usually in the middle) for the state agencies. If possible, always document EVERYTHING, my ex has bi-polar, and without proving it, I would have ended up sharing custody, and he ended up with supervised visits. Documentation is key! And make sure you document what the exact problem is. MENATL ABUSE is much harder to prove! there are no physical bruises. If you know or are the teacher document the school work struggling or the anti-social behavior or worse the behavior that they may duplicate from home.
This is a hard question to answer considering I don't know you. If your husband was very close to his mother and extremely emotional over her death then he is allowed to have… his grieving period (there is no limit to grieving) and it's a natural process and a healthy one. Perhaps you could ask friends, or your own parents if they could take the kids for a weekend and try to get away with your husband. It doesn't have to be an expensive trip, but just somewhere where you could perhaps walk hand-in-hand on the beach, talk about how he feels about his mother's death, try to give some comfort and wise advice and simply let him know you understand the best you can as to how he feels. Try the mini holiday. If you can't afford this or don't have the time then try a whole day off on the weekend and a nice dinner in the evening and walk somewhere. Get in touch with each other and simply let him know you are thinking about his feelings. It will help the grieving time run a little more smoothly for him. Good luck Marcy Just try to be as much of a comfort to him as you can be. Be his best friend AND his wife.
If your cousin is mentally challenged and his mother does not give him what he needs what can you do?
Answer I'm not particularly sure what you mean but if your talking about basic needs then yes do what ever it is to help out your help will be greatly appreciated somet…imes it's hard for parents to do what is necessary for their kids who have learning disability so yes help if you can. Answer Social Sevices or Human Services wouldbe the people to talk to. If he is at school see if you can talk to one of his teachers. Answer Persons who are mentally challenged are eligible to receive many forms of public assistance including Medicare, Medicaid and other government aid and resources. In such situations a case worker is assigned to oversee the personal care of the mentally challenged person including educational and physical therapy, special medical needs and so forth. If the family is not receiving such aid it may be due to the fact that the parents/caregivers are not aware of the assistance that is available. The state's department of family and human services can assist in whatever matter is needed, telephone numbers can be found in the "state government pages" of the local phone directory. Before making the conclusion that said person is not getting what is needed, one must be very certain what those needs are. If the person is not being kept healthy by proper diet and hygiene, not receiving needed medical or dental care, or there are signs of abuse or neglect it is a serious problem and it should be reported at once. On the other hand it may be a misunderstanding of what the person's needs are by those who are not schooled in the care of the mentally handicapped. One option might be to communicate to the parent(s) one's concerns about the care being given and try to find an equitable solution before involving outside agencies. Answer Depending on the degeree of "needs not met", there are a few things you could do to help. Ask the mother if she is aware of assistance available for special needs children and adults. If not, help her make some phone calls to various agencies; state and town etc... Sometimes it can be overwhelming for a mother of someone with special needs, and a little help can go a long way. Some parents a against any help from "outsiders". If there is outright neglect or abuse, you should call the state and find out which agency could help the situation. No child or adult should be abused or neglected, and the penalty is higher for abuse/neglect of the elderly and hanicapped. If the situation is high priority (abuse, serious neglect, serious lack of ordinary care), the person may need to be removed from their current living conditions. Answer ANOTHER POINT of view is that it is a FELONY to abuse and/or neglect a person with MENTAL RETARDATION,, you can help your cousin by contacting the State Agency that protects people with retardation. They will investigate and if they find the handicapped person IS being neglected, they can help the parent to meet the necessary laws of proper care and/or help them get out of that situation....Best of luck...you are doing your cousin a BIG favor by helping them out. Do NOT call it retardation that word is not acceptable any more. The question you have to ask youself is how your cousin is being neglected or treated. If the situation is minor and your cousins carer is finding it difficult to look after your cousin on their own, or even with the help of family, there are polenty of care services that can help. Asking at the school or asking a social worker, if they have one, is a good place to start. If the situation is harming your cousins development, or mental, or physical help you may want to bypass your cousins carer and go to through the school or social worker and they will be able to assess the situation proffessionally and set in place what supports or actions that are needed.
If you mean getting "custody" of your grandchildren, it depends on a lot of factors--- do the parents or gaurdians have legal custody?? Are they unfit parents?? Do you mean "v…isitation" rights?? First- If they are unfit and a state childrens agency is involved, and/or the children have been removed from the home ( or the parents rights have been "severed") then you can speak to the "case worker" and petion the court for custody. Most agencies look to place children with family members that are willing and able to assume "custody". HOWEVER- if you mean VISITATION rights, you would have to approach the parents and have an agreement with them for visitation times. If they refuse, then you can petion the courts and/or seek out a case worker who will help you. THE ISSUE of Grandparents rights is still being hashed out in the court system. GANDPARENTS are an important part of ANY child's life. If parents don't allow their children contact with their grandparents, (for whatever reason), I feel it's very sad to "use" children as pawns in their little "game". The children end up the LOSERS. I truly hope this has helped you. I wish you the very best! Any party that can establish "just cause" may petition the court for guardianship/custodial rights of a minor(s). Grandparents have a legal right to request the court grant them guardianship of a child if the circumstances warrant. A judge will always make such a decision based upon what is in the best interest of the child/children and not on the preference of family members. Answer LAST YEAR we reported in The New York Law Journal that the United States Supreme Court granted certiorari to Troxel v. Granville, [FN1] an appeal involving the constitutionality of Washington's nonparent visitation statute. We said that where a decision relating to a child is involved, regulations imposing a burden on it may be justified only by compelling state interests, because the right to rear a child is protected by the Due Process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. We suggested that when the natural parents are alive, the state's compelling interest is sufficient to allow it to determine, in the "best interest of the child", the extent to which the child's contacts with its natural family should be interfered with, only upon a showing of harm to the child. We concluded that a grandparent visitation statute which applies the "best interest" analysis, and does not require a showing of harm to the child before state interference can be authorized, is unconstitutional.

You can get a rough idea of things by searching for the diagnostic criteria of the disorder you believe you might have. Include "DSM-IV-TR" in the search box. When you find th…e criteria, see if any of them apply to you. This is not a matter of scoring. If more than a couple apply, you need to speak with a professional.

No, he has a third child now and they are all perfectly healthy
What are the challenges bee faces in proving his manness to each of his male children and how does he cope with their preception of him?
Great question. First, we must understand that Bee is not, in fact, an actual male. Bee was first born as a rare breed of pokemon, known as female. When Bee realized that he w…as not even a Bee, it was all too much for him. Bee moved to a tropical resort in northern Scandinavia and became an illegal gaterade dealer. So, to answer your question, Bee faces no challenges in proving his manness to each of his male children, because he has no children and is not a man.
