Now see I'm trying to be a friend and be supportive. Those details could of helped.The separation SHOULD lead to divorce if half of what has been told to me was true. I can’t get into details, but he did something to her that could have cost her her job and government security clearance, and is a big red flag for her future personal safety around him. Like...true crime show level stuff.
The brat may be acting out due to a possible molestation. But the her parents haven’t- AFAIK- gotten her any therapy and don’t back other adults who try to correct her behavior. Even my cousin (her stepdad) isn’t free to discipline her properly.
No I feel like I spoke out of turn and feel bad.
I hope what might have happened with the girl didn't happen. No child should have to experience that. I hope she gets the help she needs.
It does sound like a lot to deal with. Just like we tell everyone else, we're here for you. You know where to find me if you need to talk.
