The Step-grandson Problem
Here's the situation, my husband's grandson is turning 4 years old in November of this year. My husband told me he caught his son beating the child but he really doesn't want to call childrens' services due to his fear of getting his son in trouble. My husband also told me the his son has a drinking problem and so does the girlfriend neither has the patience to take care of the boy as he still isn't potty trained. My in-laws are the great-grandparents and both are sickly though once in a great while my mother-in-law babysits him. My husband is worry that the boy will be put in foster care if the beatings are discovered. As my husband is a over the road truck driver he wants us meaning me to take on raising the child full time. I have no intention of doing that. How can I get my husband to realize foster care and possibly adoption by another family would be the best thing for us all?
