I would take her in to the same doctor and get the blood work done. If you change doctors now, you will probably have to start the whole process again (X-rays, etc.). Do the bloodwork, see what the results are, get the treatment and, if there is still no improvement, see another doctor. There could be many causes that wouldn't show up on an x-ray ...
Did the whole family go swimming when you were in Orlando?View Thread
Firstly, you can't change other people, you can only change yourself. He's not going to change, therefore you have to change your perception/reaction to him. See if you can't find yourself a good therapist and make an appointment today.
Secondly, you are way too invested in your parents' lives. How your father treats your mother and whether she accepts or not is none of your business. Distance yourself from this.
Thirdly, I'm not sure what you hope to gain by pointing out his flaws - nobody likes to have their flaws pointed out and a defensive reaction is absolutely normal.
Finally, you say that you don't make enough money to move out - I suggest you find a way of changing that and in the meantime that you spend as much time outside of the home as possible so that you can avoid ruminating over things.
Therapy is a minimum requirement for this. Sexual curiosity is only curiosity when the two individuals are of approximately the same age. Your grandson is much older than his half sister and his behavior was that of a predator. It doesn't matter if he only did it once (that you know of) nor that he only used his hand, nor that he doesn't see his sisters very often, he needs help NOW. You need to think about his potential future victims. Please do not stick your head in the sand - get him help today.View Thread
35 lbs in 8 months is an awful lot of weight and even more so for someone who is petite. If I were you, I'd be heading back to the doctor's to discuss this. If this is of no help I'd look for a different doctor for a second opinion.View Thread
You simply tell him that he should go somewhere private to do that. What he's doing is fairly normal. Doing it in public isn't. Tell him to do it in his room or in the bathroom. He maybe thinks that he's being so discreet about it that nobody notices View Thread
Not only this but most states have laws stipulating that foster children can only share a bedroom with same sex children and must have their own beds. I would imagine that CPS would extend the same principle to children from different families.View Thread
