When he was in the hospital last, he reportedly said that we were beating him.
Child Protective Services comes tomorrow to do followup.
The case worker stated “David reported that he was made to eat soap and his mom was mean to him.”
The issue at hand is simple. Mom is a teacher. David has zero clue what is at stake here with his lies and the resulting fall out.
All that we can do is let the social worker into our home, speak candidly and carry on.
The result of the investigation will show that we are doing everything we can to help him. His lies have already shown him to be what he is, and nothing that happens in the next 24 hours will change that.
But the emotional toll is still there. This hit against our ability to parent our child is real.
I don’t understand how he can do the things that he does, and we have no recourse. He can be emotionally and mentally abusive, and all that we can do is therapy. We don’t retaliate, because honestly, we stopped spanking him a long time ago. I could spank him with your hand and it would have no affect on his behavior.
The emotional toll is still there. Please, a prayer for peace in our family.
