This is a question Terrible Parenting

My parents used to lock my brother, sister and I in the car while they went to the pub for a "quick one" after work. This quick one might last several hours, during which they would send bottles of Indian Tonic Water to us by way of refreshment.

On one particularly cold evening, bored stupid, we lit a small bonfire on the back seat of the car using the cigarette lighter and the contents of the glove box. We owe our lives to passing winos. (BTW: Please no more Maddie or Jesus gags, they've been done.)

I'm currently at a Camp in america
No, not a detention camp, but a day camp somewhere in the USA.

I have worked with lots of kids, aged 5 - 25 (and all my fellows in various IT depts.) this poor kid takes the biscuit.

He is 7 and supposedly got bipolar disorder, apart from he has never had a recorded depressive phase. still the parents gleefully dope him up on lithium, consigning him to a lifetime of drug taking, as the withdrawal symptoms of lithium are roughly a 33% chance of suicide.

they also fail to tell him off when he does bad things for example: him running into a very busy car park next to a main road, the parents were more concerned with who will be my co councilor than the fate of her son, and the support assistant chasing him.

as far as we can tell every time he misbehaves he appears to get a hug. hence his supposed "mania" he also seems to exhibit autistic traits (unable to correctly partake in conversations, not understanding social order, unable to empatise, unable to calculate peoples moods.)

oh and he is ginger.
