I would still love them, but hate thier actions. I would do what it takes to get the help that they need no matter if they like it or not. My goal would be to help them get on the right path, what ever it takes.
I will stand by my son if I believe he is innocent. But if there was a situation like the Casey Anthony case, I wouldn't be able to stand by him. I would love him no matter what he does - But I don't think I could stand by and chant "He's innocent", If I truely believed he wasn't. Now, I don't think I would be able to go public to say that he was a criminal - BUT I would do everything in my power to find out the truth because without truth it would be hard to know what side you should stand on.
Yes I would. If you heard about this story from Northern NY,
Mother Poisons Kids
A mother of three children is being accused by trying to kill her three children. She poisoned the kids' applesauce by lacing it with prescription and OTC drugs.
Police found the children in a hotel room semiconscious. All the children are listed in critical condition.
They found the mother in a cemetery, where she overdosed on antidepressants but is still alive. She was charged with assault and attemped murder and being held without bail. The woman was in the psychiatric hospital but was released before this happened.
She is my cousin(by marrige) and her dad comletly abandoned her. He never visits her, and wel neither does any of the family. Im not sure if her kids do. And the oldest 2 kids wont eat applesauce anymore. I wouldnt let my kid sit in prision and rot. I would visit, and make sure he/she was getting help
Wow, thats horrible. Did all three kids make it? I can see that two did, but you never mentioned the third.
When my kids are doing the right thing again I would stand by them if they did something terrible. Lets say they were on meth and did all the terrible things you hear about that damages the entire family. I would throw that child out but let them know I will pay for rehab and house them as long as they stay sober. I would not let a child do whatever they want and just allow it to happen with no consequences.
