Here's one you probably wont read elsewhere. My daughter is 13 and bi-polar. She knows right from wrong. She demonstrates this everyday. Also, everyday she beats up her father, whom she lives with, physically and or verbally. To protect himself he videos her "outbursts" as he calls them.
She has kicked him, bit him, clawed him and thrown chairs and other items at him. She calls him aweful filthy names. No, he is not mean to her. Just the opposite. Too laid back maybe. She would never dream to do these things to me. She did when she was younger and I was in the home. For my protection we decided to have joint custody with her living with him up hte street. I see her everyday though.
How do you think he should be handling her abusiveness? Sometimes he is bruised and bleeding from her.
