Quoting Cheeks mom:" Oh and if it was MY child.... I would tell them about my personal experience with living that kind of ... [snip!] ... gets worse and harder. But if it was my nephew, the approach would be different. Also I would put him in cognitive therapy"
He has in fact been seeing a therapist. Idk how often that is. I am also praying when he goes to court over this bike stealing ordeal that they can mandate a scared straight program, because if he doesn't change his ways all I can see in his future is prison, or worse. Thank you for the words of advice! I've been so torn the last few days thinking about it and DH is no help, he hates my sister and says he will never have anything to do with her, and doesn't want our children around her or her children, which I do agree with. Besides her oldest son, she has two other boys who are like 'wild child' and don't listen... not going to let them influence my
children. So any relationship I have with her and her kids would be separate from my family.
