No child can simply "deal" with something like this. Even adults have a hard time dealing with a sociopath. Remember they are very deceptive and subtle. Jerks are jerks. But sociopaths are nearly impossible to detect. I had a horrible childhood and I'm pretty sure my mother was/is either borderline or a sociopath. I love my mother like you would not believe and our relationship has gotten much better as I've gotten older. She also has mellowed a LOT and we are close. Back to the 10-year-old, I would've done much better as a child had I known it wasn't me causing her to act the way that she did. I couldn't understand how my mother was so friendly and wonderful to the outside world but such a nightmare to me and my father and my siblings behind closed doors. As a ten year old I thought it HAD to be me or us. WE were at fault. The best support you can give to a victim of a sociopath -- child OR adult is to constantly build their self esteem.

20 years of brutal negotiation. You cannot give a sociopath an inch.

Just because she is "female" doesnt mean anything. A sociopath is a sociopath and the only way to "deal" with them is to stay as far away as possible.

talk to a lawyer to legally arrange you and his visiting time with your child and if you think he is dangerous file separately(or have the lawyer do it for you) a restraining order

Dealing with a SociopathWikiAnswers contributors give their opinions:Stay away from them. This is not a joke. You do not "deal" with sociopaths. Get a copy of "The Sociopath Next Door" and read it for some perspective.If possible, it is best to just avoid sociopaths. If you cannot avoid them, be on guard, and if necessary call the police.

Express your concerns to your father or another adult family member. Let them deal with the issue if there is one.

A woman who gave birth to a child. A mom, on the other hand, is the one who cares for the child. The one who had to deal with the throw up, the pooping, the crying, the teenage years, and the overall growing up of the child.

Ask for a transfer away from that person. Or leave the job, which is usually the only way to deal with it. Complaining to superiors about the problem will rarely get you anywhere, because after all, the sociopath has them wrapped around their little finger.

It's not for the mother to decide. He has to petition for visitation in court. She can not go against a court order.

We would like to help you with the best answer we can give, but we do need more information. Is the father an illegal immigrant and does is he in contact with the child? Thank you

Father owes child support until the child reaches the age of majority regardless of what mother's source of income is. and regardless if the mother is on ssi or ssdi she still supports the child. It is always the fathers responsibility to support there child no matter the mothers income or not how ever she does it to feed , dress , put a roof over his or her head is her deal . and should not be a concern not to pay for ur child

The biggest thing that you need to understand is that they are a package deal. You have to get along with the child or children and you have to accept them just like you are accepting their mother.

Generally, if the parents are not married, the mother is in charge of the child. Court orders are fine, but people have to live them. It makes more sense for the parents to go to mediation so that this can be worked out--outside of their relationship. The child will need both parents to survive and if both follow the ground rules it can work on the surface. The deal is that the child is safe, loved and cared for in either parent's charge and for that, unbiased communication and actions need to occur.

Tasks of a Mother?I like to describe a mother's task as at first protecting the child but then, as it matures, molding it into a functioning, well-adjusted member of our society. This means, that at times, it will be the job of the mother - and, of course, of the father - to restrict the basic selfish attitudes of a growing child and teach it how to deal with others. To help your child learn how to relate to another human being is then the primary task of parents. Read more about raising a child in "Caring for Your Baby and Young Child," by William and Martha Sears. To be a mother is to master the ability to engage yourself in the process of unlimited positive thinking for another person. Unconditional love and the rest will follow!

First of all, if there is a visitation order it's not the mother who decides whether you are allowed to see the child or not, it's the court and if the mother makes it impossible for you to do so she is breaking the court order. You then report this to the court that issued the order and they will deal with her. And yes, you can give up your parental rights with hers and the courts permission but you will still have to pay child support.

Sociopaths almost never recognize their lack of empathy and cruelness as a problem. so if you "bust" him or her, nothing good will come of it. Sociopaths will never change. The conscience boat came floating by when they were young and they never jumped on it, and the boat never comes by again. The best way to deal with a sociopath is to get as far away from them as possible. If you must have contact, have as little as possible.

You don't deal with your mother, you deal with your own immaturity. You will find she does not 'hate' you, another sign of your own inability to take responsibility for your own actions.

I think it it more the other way around, The police deal with them.
