A friends grandfather worked at a hospital in Michigan in the 60's. He would say you can't really think of them as human but try to make them s comfortable as possible. Just animals that looked human.

They are still out there.

That's so heartbreaking for the whole family especially the child.
There are some children that are born with mental illness
And there is No cures.
It's tough to imagine having to grow up like that

I hate it when living things suffer..
Should we put down the mom or the child though?

The empathy on this thread is sad.

One story, lacking a lot of context, and you are read to throw this kid on the scrapheap?

Frankly that sucks.

Are there people that end up in institutions? Of course. Very violent people.

We have no idea the real truth behind this story so come on now and be a little nicer to your fellow man,

I hate to say it, but they could be right. GIven the combination of things going on with this kid, he could be locked inside himself so deep that it would take a miracle to reach him and in the meantime he's a danger to himself and everyone around him.

What do you do with him? He's done nothing wrong. He's not really capable of understanding right and wrong I don't think. Putting him in prison isn't the answer, and the days when there were mental institutions equipped for dealing with this are gone, and it was always questionable how many of those places really were suited for this type thing anyhow.

I'm not sure how you handle and manage him an a humane fashion.
