      She's not a good mom. She acknowledges the fact that he may kill her other children, that she gave another baby up for the same reason but keeps him in the home. Kevin's the one who needs to be sent away. She's not protecting her other children. Fck that fat pos kid

            So when would it be ok to put him in a hospital? After hes already killed someone?! Some of you over sympathizers need to understand its NOT ok to put a kid who has special needs head and shoulders above your other children..my older sister has behavior issues almost like this kid...and you know what mom constantly babying and coddling her drove all of us away... LOVE ALL YOUR CHILDREN THE SAME!! special needs doesn't mean no rules for the other kid

              I don't get it though.. you don't have to give up your baby if you had given HIM up instead. He's the problem. You get rid of him, you save the other children

                  She is doing the best she can. I hope Dr. Phil was able to get them the help needed. Praying for her.

                    *Um, I'm sorry but why didn't she give up the child who is causing all the problems rather than the innocent baby?!?*
                    That is completely unfair to the baby......

                        She shouldn’t have gotten pregnant he’s been like this for a while

                          Savannah Boze well maybe she should try to quit getting pregnant and use protection when she’s already trying to stop her other children from fighting and handle her one with special needs. Take a pill or use a condom. Not that hard

                        Man, looks like so many people here have been exactly in this woman's shoes and know all about her and her situation. Be quiet, keyboard warriors who probably don't even have kids.

                            I would have put the 10 year old in an institution and kept my newborn. What's to say he won't hurt his sisters?

                                          I’m sorry but he’d have to go over my newborn. I’m sorry but my other kids and my sanity isn’t worth all of that. He’s constantly like this and it’s affecting everyone else.

                                            Mothers like her will go beyond to protect their children, she put everything down and gave up what was essentially hers to keep and hold. It’s so sad that she had to give the baby up, but it was for the best, so sad that the timing was off, if only she could’ve been helped earlier 😣
                                            This is a true mother, sacrificial and yet has patience. My deepest respect for her, God bless.

                                              Should he be kept alive? Is it ethical to forcefully keep alive someone who is dangerous to others and himself? These people live their lives in constant pain then they just die. What is the point to impose life onto someone who can't do anything with it?

                                                Jeez, that's a morally loaded question. If he was an animal, he would have been put to sleep before his second birthday. Your comment does make me wonder if he's even happy with his life.

                                                  She should have sent him away,not the newborn...where she could visit him at arms length and in safety. Some kids are just pure brats these days. Who are in need of discipline. Its not always a medical problem

                                                  Bite the bullet and have him adopted also, for the sake of the other children in the home.

                                                    A strong move to put the baby up for adoption... I don’t blame her. She did it to protect that baby.

I hope he will one day get better and realize he doesn’t need to do these things. My heart also goes out too the mother because this is probably so hard and confusing on her. Stay strong little one.
