Living with the inlaws, they adopted 14yo nephew from mil’s son. He has apparently been lying to them, ditching school, stealing... all stuff he has a history of doing, and yet they are surprised. The thing is EVERYTHING he lied about is stuff they could have verified and should have been verifying. I even told them about how the online system thing for the public schools will tell you what days and exactly what classes he has been missing because I’ve suspected him of ditching a few times myself (he gets home like 5 minutes after school gets out and it’s a 20 minute walk, different locks are locked when I get home during the day). I get that they’re upset, they have every right to be... but 90% of what he has been doing could have been caught and stopped weeks ago if they had verified what he told them. And it’s not like he has earned their trust, he was busted in July for stealing phones, and expelled from his school in May for starting a fight and lying about it.

In response to a confession. I am SO sorry you are going through this. I want you to know that I went through the same thing, and I made it. But during our custody battle, I was scared. effing. shitless. I have no family here. My ex is a well-connected cop who had gotten away with a LOT (and still does), so he could easily make me disappear. I had a separate cell phone in a far-off relative's name. I had encrypted email. If I worked late when he had ds, I would sleep at work. I had "safe houses" and code words/phrases that only certain people knew, so they'd know where I was going to be staying. He rerouted my mail, stole my trash, hacked work and personal emails. There's so much more...it was terrible. Be strong for your kids. I don't know your religious beliefs but just know that I'm going to be praying for your strength and perseverance. (((hugs)))

In response to a confession. I've worked with abused women. Unfortunately, most police departments won't do jack for a potential domestic abuse victim. She can call and tell them she fears for her safety, but until he threatens her with physical harm, or actually attacks her, they won't do anything. If he does do those things, she'll then have to go to great lengths to prove it. And then, for many victims, once they do get attacked, they get shamed for not looking out for themselves. "Well, you knew he was scary. Why didn't you get a gun? Carry mace? Get a restraining order?" It's absolutely fucking infuriating.

In response to a confession. Can you go to your local police department and ask to make a report? In the event that something happens, they'll know what to do. I, so sorry you're living in fear, OP!

In response to a confession. The most disturbing part of this whole post is that she lets her 10 year old ride in the front seat of the car. No one under 13 should, ever, ever, ever ride in the front seat. Ever. I don't care if they're 6 feet tall. It has to do with bone, ligament, and muscle development, not size.

I have a friend with a son the same age as DS. She has babied her ds to the extent that at 10 years old she still dresses him, washes his hair and he doesn't get his own snacks. My ds is super independent and has been that way since infancy. We have never discussed their differences but it has been very obvious. Recently we became friends with another mom with a child the same age and this child is of normal independence which is still leaps and bounds over my friends ds. All of a sudden my friend is putting her son into situations to prove he is "mature". Leaving him home alone, allowing him to ride up front even though he is on the shorter side for his age. Allowing him to walk around the mall by himself. There are many other things but it just seems so odd to go from bathing your 10 year old to leaving him home alone (we live I'm a foreign country because of the military) so we don't speak the local language fluently if something were to happen.

Continued...I told everyone I know, including the CPS worker that showed up to my house to investigate those false claims against me that if I ever disappear, I didn't disappear willingly, my ex and his evil mother will have something to do with my disappearance. I told everyone where to look for my body if I go missing. My kids counselor knows all this, I told her cause it needs to be on record. I'm not close to my little brother but I texted him to let him know what's going on and let him know where to look for my body if I go missing so there's definitely a trail everywhere of me stating that my ex would kill me and my ex mil would be involved in my murder. At this point it's not even about the CS, it's about the kids safety but he knows the only way to control me still is through the kids and he knows if he loses visitation there goes his control against me. Feeling so scared for my kids safety and my own.

I'm going to be filing something soon against my ex. He been in arrears for CS since February and has owed more before then but always made some kind of payment, not the entire monthly amount but he stopped paying any CS in February. I can't give details on here cause I'm sure he and/or my ex SIL might lurk on here since he used to snoop on me back on the old confession site. He was the one who convinced my kids to lie against me and say I was abusing them. I have them in counseling and I found out he's been doing some awful stuff to them that warranted the counselor to call CPS on their dad. I admit I'm scared to file anything cause I know he's pissed about having to pay me CS. Cont...

In response to a confession. The little girl was 17 months old, so I don't think she had much to say about how she was dressed. There were also set days that the little ones went out to the playground, and on those days it was stressed that the children had to have closed-toed shoes in order to go outside. The first time I met this little girl was when we had to bring her into the infants' room with us (that's where I worked) because she'd been brought to school in sandals and the sneakers her mother brought to change into were way too small, so she couldn't go out to the playground. I'm not a judge-y person unless I see children who are being left out or suffering because of lazy parenting. I was a single working mom with a hectic schedule for many years, but always made sure my child had what he needed and was comfortable.

In response to a confession. I hope the mother of his kids isn't as big of a dipshit as he is.
