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.
With a broken heart.......................
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
With a great deal of difficulty!
You keep reminding her that you are her child after all. Tell her that you are updated version of her!
I would get some kind of protection order..
If you have anti-social personality disorder the military wipes their hands clean of you and kick you out.
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.
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.
File for change of residential custody. see links
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.
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
With respect, much as he should treat her. Why would he want to be with someone who disrespected his child's mother? Why would you want to be with someone who disrespected his child's mother? Whether or not you like the ex, you'll make life so much easier for the boyfriend--and, especially, his child--if you can keep the child's welfare as your top priority in your dealings with the ex.
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.
It's not for the mother to decide. He has to petition for visitation in court. She can not go against a court order.
No. Both the mumps virus and its antibodies can both cross the placental barrier, so the mother's antibodies can easily and safely deal with the virus.
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
I would think so. Unless she makes a deal with dad not to and they both agree. Get it in writing, so go get an attorney to make sure.
"it is what it is"
speaking from experience, yes. my mother's a sociopath; I had several horrible relationships with men with sociopathic traits. I'm 29 and in my first relationship with a really good person. when you're raised to deal with a manipulative psycho, well, that's what you do best and they can spot you a mile away. it sucks.
Mother's day is a day to prove how much you really love your mother and cherish all the wonderful things she has done for you. It shows her a great deal of respect, and she knows that she did the right thing: raised a wonderful child. Mother's day is about letting your mother chill out for the day and getting her presents, and showing love.
