I did look it up. Thanks its about an hour from where we live. I definitely am not ready to put him in a group home or anything. But I see they offer other services and family support...its another avenue to TRY

I did read about your rib and I am so sorry that he hurt you. I think that using soap to keep him from saying bad words or as a punishment for any other bad behavior is not the answer. Sadly I don't know what the answer is but I agree that your family needs some kind of help in order to deal with his problems. I really do hope you are able to find the help you need.

Well we are trying to go to SC where my family is so they can help us ...the biological dad won't let us go but maybe the court will let us go because bio dad only sees son 8 hours a month.
