I brought this situation up to a friend, and they wondered if anyone called social services or the police on her ass? Because this kind of parenting (especially with the child nearly going over the rail) if not classic
child abuse or child endangerment, it certainly speaks of neglect.
Unfortunately, the best place for that child may be in foster care.
At least while the dipshit takes and passes a few parenting classes.
