Distressing BF update
BF reported that Dad took every single bit of technology away. All computers are locked up in basement. He has BF's cell phone (more on that in a bit). TV, Ipod, all gone. Land line, gone. Even clock radio gone. BF is totally separated from the world. BF is not allowed to go anywhere, talk to anyone except for camp. BF said that the only thing BF can do is sleep, draw, and read. BF is not a reader. BF is spending all the time sleeping. BF thought that all his/her friends deserted BF. Had absolutely no idea that people were worried. Said that Dad told BF that too much family information was being shared, which is why BF is in isolation. Isolation will be in effect until school starts in September. So not cool.
BF said that police, sheriff (who knew we even had a sheriff!) and DSS came to home. NEVER questioned BF alone. Talked to Dad, who was furious and lied. What a big surprise. BF said nothing about being physically examine. BF also said that Dad filed a false claim report. I didn't know there was such a thing, but that is what BF said. BF also believes, as Dad does, that love interest made the call.
Now, the cell phone. Dad has BF's phone, and has been texting Love Interest and other people leaving false information. He texted Love Interest and "broke up with him" and left threats. There were at least 4 text messages. He has also left Friend text messages. In addition, any calls to BF have not been reported to him/her, so BF does not know how many people have tried to get in touch with BF. Grandma is complicit in this, not telling BF about phone calls coming in for BF. Love Interest has no clue that texts are fake. LI is highly upset and away at camp.
So that's the update. Obviously, I'm more than a little bit concerned. BF isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, and we're dealing with a kid with a LOT of learning disabilities. BF doesn't understand the subtle nuances of what's going on. My kid was giving BF hints about talking to Dad, calling DSS, etc. BF didn't get it. What is happening in that house is unacceptable. You can't do that to a kid. Especially a kid that did nothing wrong. This proves my suspicious that Dad is off his rocker. So what are the options?
Call DSS and report this and add the sexual abuse to the initial report.
Do nothing and stew all summer, worrying.
Try and talk to Dad, which obviously won't do a thing but make more trouble.
I didn't even get a chance to talk about this to our family therapist because we had such a "lively" session this morning, as both kids were totally 'on'. Oh my God, I think the therapist was dying to just run away screaming. It was kinda funny it was so horrible.
