Basically I have 15 year old cousin who seems miserable at home. She lives with her mother and her brother, her mother recently has gotten serious with a man she really dislikes.
I didn't think it was really a problem until I was visiting with her the other day and her mothers boyfriend was there, he was talking down to her and he had her logged into an online gambling site, getting her to gamble for him.
I'm worried because lately on her myspace and other online sites I'm her friend on she seems to be showing some really bad (depressed/upset) symptoms, she confided in my mother yesterday that she "hates" living there and her mothers boyfriend.
She is like a sister to me and I feel very protective of her, I'd like to approach the idea that she's welcome to stay/move in with us, and that we'd even be willing to move into a bigger house so she can have a more stable home life, but I'm not sure how to, or if it'd be the right thing to do.
Opinions are welcome, please be kind though, I have only pure intentions.
