My mother has always had problems with stress, as many mothers do have. But lately it seems to be getting worse. She takes it out on both of my younger sisters and her husband (my stepfather). Her stress leads to explosions of anger which usually result in her flinging curse words around and telling everyone she hates this family and wants to drive off a bridge.
She also has problems with letting my stepfather discipline their 3 year old daughter. My mother can spank her, but he can't. She sets all the rules for her and he has no say in the matter. It seems that nothing he does it acceptable to her. Nothing.
My husband and I were thinking of suggesting that she seek professional help. Not to get on drugs or anything, but just someone to talk to. Some kind of therapy. The problem with that is that they are not doing well enough financialy to pay $100 a visit for a therapist.
So my question is: Does anyone know of any kind of program that we could contact that would help my mother without costing an arm and a leg.
Thanks, in advance.
