SD Tried Set Home On Fire?
Well where do I start? I will make a long story short. Defiant, SD14 was thrown out of BM's home because she behaving over the top. Anyway, since the day she has arrived, she has been behaving like a child who has not received any direction on respect, house-rules, etc. After being asked several times not to leave the space heater in her room turned on, she leaves it on this morning when she left out for school. (guest bedroom is an addition and sometimes gets a little chilly unless the heat is on full blast.) I smelled something burning and couldn't figure out what it could be, traced to smell to her room and whoa and behold, the dang heater is on full blast and sitting right up next to the bed with the blankets touching it. It other words the blankets were starting to melt. I immediately took a picture because my DH doesn't believe what I tell him. I unplug and removed the space heater from her room. I texted my husband and told him he needed to talk to her about this and that this was really serious. Fortunately I woke up earlier than usual this morning or I could have very well been burned up in the house, not to mention the neighbor's house as well. For the life of me, I really feel she did that on purpose. He puts a space heater right next to bed and leaves it on. She is supposed to be returning BM's home after the holidays. I was more upset that she endangered the neighbors who have very small children. It was about 7 am EST. They could have been sleep just like I and we all could have been burned alive had the heater caught our house on fire and spread to the neighbors' houses. I am truly done with this child I made it very clear to my DH. I told him she cannot ever apologize for this incident because people could have been homeless or worst killed. I am so livid and frustrated, I don't know what to do. Just need to let someone know about what I experienced today. I know teens act out because some of them are immature but when they but peoples lives in harm's way, it has already gone to far!
