After a very bitter separation with my husband I was left at home with 4 children. A couple of the children handled the split with ease but the 13 year old boy didnt. I reached breaking point with him and it got to the point where i took him down social services and told them to have him. They said they could'nt help me even though i sat in font of them black and blue with what he had done to me. The did refer us to CAST which is for troubled teens. I found them to be quite helpful and my son has calmed down a bit but on the whole support for parents is very restricted. I would reccomend cast but i would also like to see more options open to parents in similar situations. I do not really know if this problem will ever get sorted out but I think it would make the world a nice place if parents had some support and some back up available if things do go wrong. Even if it is too let them know they have made mistakes and how to handle things in the future.
