H just informed me that my 8 yr old SD has come, armed will pull ups. She has wet the bed 3 times this week at home.
A quick talk discovered backache, tummy ache, stinging when she wees, and a bad smell. A Urine infection, surely? SD said she's had the pain all week, but her Mum didn't take her to the Drs.
I told H to take her to the drs/clinic tomorrow. Something that is obviously too hard for the ex to do. Seriously, what is wrong with that woman???

Oh the poor thing. What a shame for her.
Lucky she comes to you as otherwise she wouldn't have it sorted at all would she?
Argh. I understand your frustration.

Poor girl-thank god she has you looking out for her - hope she gets an app soon xx
08/03/2013 at 21:09
Ah poor thing, thank god she has you AK with a bit of sense. Hope is sorted for her x
That is awful. Do you get on with her mum or would you feel confident mentionning this to the GP tomorrow? She is neglecting her child's needs. It's neglect.

Poor kid, that's the crap I had to deal with Is there a walk in centre you cna take her to?
Ohhh, me and the ex don't get on. She didn't like that I raised issues with the kids hygiene (she wipes them down with a cloth, no bath or shower. She doesn't wash their hair, or comb through when they have head lice) We've had endless problems with the kids, and she just isn't helpful. If H was to phone her tomorrow, to tell her, she wouldn't answer her phone. She'd ring back hours later, moaning because we had interrupted her weekend.

QI, we have a non emergency hospital that is basically like a clinic, you can just walk in. (H goes all the time to get cotton buds removed from his ear)

The poor soul.
08/03/2013 at 21:22
Poor SD, at least she has you (I hope she realises this in years to come as well). I hope something is sorted quickly for her x

If someone told me what your posts say here at work AK, I'd be flagging it up for referral. Neglecting medical needs and hygiene is not acceptable. Do the kids' school know about the lack of hygiene at home?
I have remembered your posts about her and on her behalf thank you for being there for her

They've got to know. When they come here, they stink, and they look dirty, i'd be shocked if the school didn't take note. The ex hasn't given the school our details though, so we have no correspondence with the school.
SS broke down in tears one week, saying that people at school call him stinky, and they don't want to sit by him.
08/03/2013 at 21:29
That breaks my heart completely. Could the GP do some sort of referral?
08/03/2013 at 21:32
Does your H have parental responsibility for the kids? If so, she cant stop him having correspondence and contact with the school, she doesn't have to set it up, it can come direct from H I think.
I'd like to think the school would have picked it up and taken it seriously, but if nothing has changed, it might be worth a check. Did you know you can call the school or SS with any concern over ANY child, whether related or not?

Your poor SD an SS, how awful for both of them, but particularly your SD at the moment having to suffer all week. They're lucky to have you look after them xx
08/03/2013 at 21:36
Wow, how sad for them, sounds like a bad situation.
08/03/2013 at 21:38
They have shared custody. We have them every Friday, and every other Saturday.
I think has just pushed my H over the edge, he's fuming
08/03/2013 at 21:41
I'm not surprised, your poor H seeing his kids treated like that. I hope you get SD sorted this weekend, and as for the other stuff, I hope you get somewhere with that as well. A short sharp shock from SS might be worth it.
08/03/2013 at 21:54
I'm very tempted to call SS myself. If H tells the Drs the situation, will they do anything?
