recently i had a falling out with my brother actually. hes 17 by the way.it all started when i was pregnant but just recently about 2 weeks ago he threatened my son who by the way is only 10 months old and hasnt done anything. my brother doesnt like us coming over for whatever reason. he told my mom and sister that if my son didnt leave he would kick him in the head and slap his face. and i know he meant it because he has said stuff like that before it front of me. well yesterday i had enough, i told my mom that i cant have my son around them anymore. she understood. my brother has also been very mean to my mom recently too. he tried slapping her and whipping her with his t-shirt. my brother was also abusive to me when i was 17 and i had to move out because no one in my family did anything and i couldnt take it anymore. that was 3 years ago and even though he doesnt hit me anymore he still abusive in other ways. i feel so bad that i cant take my son to see his grandparents and aunt, my son is my parents first grandchild also. so we have to start treating this like a custody battle. i would have to meet my mom at a park or something because i cant bring my son to her house. and as for Christmas my dad will be missing out because he has to watch my brother because he cant trust him home alone. i didnt want one grandparent here and one grandparent there missing out. my brother has ruined everything and we cant do nothing about it. i really want to get a restraining order against him but if i do that then i wont be able to go near anybody at that house and i cant do that to my mom and sister. i dont know what to do about my brother, i have called the cops before 3 years ago on him and had proof that he was hitting me and they didnt do one thing. and im not sure that if i tell the cops about what hes doing right now if they'll care or if my parents will lie for my brother. im stuck, my mom loves my son more than any of us 3 kids and its really hard to not have her see him. i live in California so laws are different in other places. please if someone can help me figure out what to do ill take anything.
