She is actually my granddaughter. Her parents are divorced. She has always been a very difficult child with violent tantrums She spent 1/2 time with mom and 1/2 with dad but last year refused to come to moms as mom required certain behavior. Dad let her do whatever. She has gradually become even more uncooperative. Now refuses to go out of his apartment for any reason. Claims she is going insane because they have taken her phone (very valid reason) and banned computer (another very valid reason) Refuses to cooperate with anything they ask of her in order to gain privileges back. She has been in years of counseling and they have tried to get help thru social services to no avail. She has said she has reason to live but since she has not attempted suicide no reason to hospitalize her. What do they do to get this child some help before she does something drastic.
