Hi Ladies. So long story short about a year ago my stepson created a situation that caused Police and Child Protective Services to become involved in my home. He woke up while we all were asleep, woke up my daughter, she had on no shoes, he had on no jacket.He proceeded to unlock my front door and take off with my child. The police came into my house about 30 minutes later to inform me that him and my daughter were found a few blocks away. He was 5 years old at the time. I told my then fiance' how I felt about the situation. It could have ended badly. My daughter or him could have been hit by a car, kidnapped..I could have went to jail and lost everything vital to our survival. Since that moment, I have not wanted this child in my house. I feel that he is mentally unstable...this child cut off his evebrows because the kids at school told him he has ugly eyebrows!!!! What 5 year old cuts off their eyebrows!!! I feel like this child will be the end of my marriage......I told my husband he needs to proceed with a DNA test because the child may not be his....none of his family or mine thinks the child is his.....I would feel so much better about if he did find out that he was his....but he has ignored all chances to do so and I don't understand why. Our marriage is solid and I love him a lot but this child is a deal breaker.....he is supposed to visit us in the next few weeks and I'm already dreading it.....IDK what to do.. this child is a terror! From that incident, I has taken me a year to recover.. I'm so afraid...when he's here, i have to push my couch in front of the front door and I may have to push my dryer in front of my back door to keep him from doing anything crazy.....I don't even want him sleeping in the room with my 2 girls (4 and 2).....what do i do?

Bummer...maybe his school could help? Maybe a parent teacher conference. I'm sure his teacher would have suggestions that your husband would be more open to hearing. Definitely keep your girls with you. Good luck. :-*

No. He wasn't asleep...He told the police where he was going and he was like "Oh, my dad and his woman are at home sleep...I was just trying to get to my aunties house..I will show ya'll where my dad is at.."...My husband got fighting mad when my mother suggested counseling and insisted that she was trying to call the boy "Crazy"....but he always overlooks the obvious that the kid has MAJOR ISSUES.....If I brought my girls in the room with me...it would pose as an issue to my husband.....sometimes I wish I could get a hotel room and just stay there the whole week! This last incident was the 3rd time he has did this (first time with his mother, 2nd time everyone was supposed to be napping and 3rd time while everyone was sleeping.......I'm terrified of this kid....

Can you keep the girls with you in your room when he visits? The child may need some counseling. .sounds like his primary home life may be causing some internal turmoil. Cutting his eyebrows because others put him down seems like a cry for aattention. Possibly he isn't getting any positive attention at home. And I wonder if he was fully aware of leaving the house.. was he possibly sleep walking?
