My kids dad just did something to our family & I really dont know what to do at this point. He as gone off & took $135 from our family for pills. Please dont ask why cause I dont know why. I wish I knew. Finding this out makes me thing what else has he done or what will he do, I am worried for my kids. I ain't to things like that & I dont let some of my family around our kids cause of those reason. Now where do I go from. here? I am so lost and need help. I love him but I want what best for my kids & I. Please help????

Leeza, I'm going to be honest with you and it's not to be mean, it's so that you might realize the seriousness of the situation. Unfortunately, you find yourself in a dysfunctional family! Your S.O. should be held responsible for what he done and for setting the matter straight! He OBVIOUSLY has a problem with pills. Do not enable him. I'm sorry to say the matter will only worsen with time if it is not stopped in its tracks now. I strongly urge the family, esp. you and your S.O. . to seek counseling. If He refuses to go, get help for yourself and kids, anyway. You deserve a healthy family.

I have found myself in many situations like this one. It took me years to finally come to the conclusion that the best thing you can do for your kids in these situations is love their father. There doesn't have to be a separation between loving him and wanting the best for your kids. Be honest with them about the facts of his behavior, such as...daddy is going through some though things right now and needs us to love him. And, love doesn't mean putting yourselves in danger, it means wanting the best for him and doing your part in bringing him to healing. Also, I believe that prayer is the best medicine. Not prayer for things to be "better" neccessarily, but for his salvation and the conviction of his sins. Only that will bring change, only God can change us. :)

wow thats a tough one. the best thing I could tell u is to communicate with him and try to see why he did this and see if he needs help and then get him help u know for ur kids at least.. its will be hard but just keep thinking positive
