My little sister is 17years old and has a 1year old son. He is a wonderful little boy. If only his mother wasnt around. She has slapped him repeatedly, we have no proof but we think she may have drugged him once while at a guys house she met on the internet. She has admitted to me that she wants her party life back. She only likes being a mother for the right to discipline him. She has shoved him into the water faucet on the bathtub because she wanted him to stay in the tub. On top of all this, she is trying to tell me how to raise my 3 month old daughter!!!

Thank you everyone for the advice. I dont want bryan to get hurt. I love my sister and maybe someday she'll forgive me. Im gonna call because I don't want to see anything bad happen. My mother has taken pictures and she recently told me she is going to talk to someone. She told my sister and my sister said if we tried she'd leave. The thing is I know she will and she'll take bryan with her if we dont watch. Also, I know Im young and I know Im naive about alot of things. But I love my daughter. I do my best to take care of her. My husband and

Don't warn your sister that you are calling child protective services.

Your sister has admitted to being an abusive parent and harming her child, you have a responsibility to call protective services. I know it sounds extreme but how would you feel if one day you heard she had drowned the child in the tub or shook him to death or some other serious harm had come to him like her drugging him to death. It happens everyday to innocent children while others knew and did nothing thinking the unthinkable would never happen. You could be saving your sisters life and future as well because her life would be over as well if she killed her child.

Your sister clearly needs parenting classes and

I agree with the others, here. If the child is being abused, I would not try to take matters into my own hands, but would call CPS instead.
