This year, for various reasons, we decided the 8yo would start school (3rd grade). She was so VASTLY behind the other kids in every subject it was embaressing, overwhelming for her, a NIGHTMARE for both her and us. It was so bad we had to pull her out. The only part she...
Quote: Originally Posted by Smokering Yeah, but... should she be in SIL's home either? Why should she have to deal with her forever? It sounds like she's been taking care of her for a long time and deserves a break. Which is not to say that the OP's home is necessarily the best choice - maybe she requires institutional care. But it sounds like the SIL is at her breaking point. If she were posting on MDC, wouldn't we all be saying "Let your brother have a...

Her one woman picket lines, handing out outrageous fliers, claiming people were having sex with animals or trying to kill her, etc. All the calls to 911, animal...

Quote: Originally Posted by Violet2 MIL is coming for an extended stay, 8-10 weeks. She's mentally ill (paranoid schizophrenia) which poses its own set of challenges in addition to the usual stress of adding new people to a house. I feel like it would be good to set some ground rules/introduce her to how our house runs. So what do you think of the following ideas and have I missed anything? I haven't lived with anyone difficult for a long time, but...
Quote: Originally Posted by cappuccinosmom However, I rarely (OK, never. ) get screamed at because I tend to be careful that I am trying not to offend, perhaps even overly cautious about that, and I would have cracked the window and said "What is it you want to talk to me about?" at the very beginning of the whole thing. Being that it is a business lot, and that parking is an issue near the school, the thought that the person was a business owner...
Quote: Originally Posted by Latte Mama The OP parked in a lot that was private and seems that she was well aware of that fact, she stated it was her "usual" spot. The lady didn't start off yelling at her but after being ignored THREE times and then the lady does yell for her to move her car, she doesn't???? Seriously?

It means he does not want to believe that he can...
