Re: help with a minor

I don't want your post to go unnoticed, but I have no idea how you would even go about this without the son asking for the help himself. I don't know if you have any kind of clinics around there where he could go if he can't talk to his parents. But as far as you taking him somewhere, not sure how that work, legally anyhow. Hope someone can help you. Take care, Lori

The parents need to take charge. That's what parents do. I'd drop a note about Bipolar and it's effect off to them. Hopefully, they would take notice.
God Bless

Re: help with a minor

Parents don't always want to face things like that, I should know. If his parents won't do anything, the only other person that can help is himself. Try to talk to him. I guess. I wish I had more for you. Sorry.
