My first post

Hi
I just wana get some things off my chest my mum, dad and sister 17 live together I live with my boyfriend. My mum and dad are going to split up which I am ok with except mum has bipolar, is an alcoholic and has some really crazy beliefs.She has decided to keep Radha, my sister, living with her I am worried sick because she drinks all the time and is not exactly street wise. She sounds like she wants to meet someone new I think she has cheated on my dad again. She is nieve and I just see in the future she will be sleeping around with dodgy men and then when she goes to hospital as she always does Rad will be left alone with these dodgy men. She thinks she can do no fault that is what pisses me off. she is always so annouying. she tells lies about my dad trying to get him introuble, and i know she is lying because she contradicts herself. I am so fustrated about her.

Hi Blueshadow,
If your sister cannot live with your father, would you be willing to have her live with you and your boyfriend until she is able to get on her feet and move out?
Sometimes it's easy to look around and see what "others" should be doing, when the answer might be right under our noses. Have you talked to your sister about what she wants?
Cheers and Good Luck!

Seeing that your dad and mom are divorcing, perhaps your dad will ask your sister if she wants to live with him?
Or, maybe she can ask your dad if she can live with him.

The possiblility of her being abused by those "dodgy men" is always there, and if your mom is bipolar and also an alcoholic, that's not a good combination--especially when she's obviously not getting help for her condition.
I would think the courts there would not allow your mom to keep any children so long as she remains in that state, because she is not taking care of herself, much less show the ability to properly take care and protect her child.

I hope it all works out for the best!
