My nephew Moved In

Defiance, Ohio

Edit to add - (I will share a new post, Monday with an update of this situation) My 16-year-old nephew is now living with me. His mom and he got in a fight. She basically told him to leave. So, he did. He has stayed here the past few nights. Last night my sister said that her son was dead to her. Back story: Her boyfriend hit her and my nephew. he is in prison. He gets out this summer. Sister says nephew has to deal with it. he says he won't stay there with him. As the boyfriend has been in prison 4 times in the past 11 years. he is a druggie. Right now sister allows drugs in her house. Has 4 adult roommates all doing drugs. House isn't clean. Her three youngest are forced to share a room. The youngest is a 6-year-old little girl. The other two are boys because of extra peoiple got the little girls room. The sisters oldest daughter has her boyfriend there. They fight all the time. Do drugs in front of the younger kids. Basically, don't care. Sister threatened to call nephew in as a runaway. He told her to go ahead he would report everything going on in the house and have his brothers and sister taken away. This sister has 7 kids. The oldest was raised by a dad and now is doing great with two kids of her own. Her oldest son has mental issues and more alone. It is really sad. The next in line is the one who lives with her boyfriend fighting doing drugs I mentioned above. She was taken out of the home by CPS and finished her last few years being raised by another sister of mine. She graduated and went back to her moms. The nephew doesn't want to be caught up in the crap and wants to get away and make a good life for himself. Any advice on how to handle all of this? As I have not been to my sister's house in over a year because I can't deal with her. But everyone is confirming my nephew's story. Even my mom says it is all true.

Your sister is a grown woman and has to face the consequences of her actions. If it was me I would call children services and the police on her. I can't imagine anywhere would be worse for those kids if they are taken away.

Her oldest daughter who is doing well is already prepared to take them.

@fishtiger58 Yes, we were talking about what has been going on. She and her husband are prepared to take them. She has two kids of her own and a nice big house to put them all in.

For the sake of the other children in that home, I would have Child Protective Services check that place out. Protecting the children should be the top priority.

That is so sad for the younger kids who are living there especially the six year old little girl. Children should not be allowed to live in those conditions. I am glad that the nephew has somewhere to go where he knows he is safe and is a good environment.

@rusty2rusty It really is when somebody doesn't put their children first.

@Happy2BeMe The funny thing is she thinks she does. AS she is teh only one working in her house. All other adults are not. They don't even help clean her house at all. Just live there and trash it. Doing what they want.

It is sad that she feels that way about her child, but this happens so much. Hope it all works out.

I would definitely call the police and CPS @rusty2rusty . If nothing else for the protection of those other kids.
