im the full time carrer for my daughter who has ts everyday is filled with fits,behaviour problems,autistic traits,little routines that are easy for her to get into but difficult to break.she forever hurting herself one way or another as well because she4s got no real sense of danger.her meds have got to be at the same time everyday or things go to pot.she goes to her dads every sat and stays over once a month(its good to have a nite off)but all he does is feed her full of junk and fizzy drinks till shes hypo,pukes and fits when she comes hom.he also let her undo her seat belt and lets her get herself out the car.we do not do this as she trys to do it as your driving along.we have had many words with him and its even been to court.but because it was just my word against his and his family(who he still lives with and takes at least one of them out with them)they didnt believe me.did i also say that it has just come out that she sleeps in his bed when she stays.i hate all this but no one will help

Maybe you could use some help from other family members or friends? I think that you should tell her father to take better care of her, because it would be a much easier if he enforced the same rules and did the same things.

That's her problem, if he didn't care in the beginning, that's why he doesn't care now! I think the Child Protective Services needs to get involved in this and monitor him on a closer basis! And do something legally!

have tried social services in the uk.but because he lives with his family they back him and tell a bunch of lies and social services dont wanna know.always get in touch with them when it gets to much.even her school sees the change in her when shes been with him

I am a caregiver too myself (practical nurse)at a nursing home,I never had that experience, but i can advice you in this life and our work field we of to deal with ourself first we offer mercy care to other. first seek God plus a lot of prayers in volve in group prayer self-control, patience,understanding and tactful.Take a quiet time out may be at lunch time or so to understand your daughter may be she is having serious psychological problems,try and be nice in a way sit and have dialogue with the father then the three of you sit together to find out what the child like and dislike,why she do the things she does hug her a lot and tell her how much God love her and you both love her and that she is very beautiful etc,etc. I hope for you the best.

both my kids always get loads of hugs and kisses.we do try to be nice to her dad but when you have to repeat things that he should/nt be doing with her and he doesnt listen at all i makes life even more difficult
