Hello everyone! I'm from the Uc forum (normally) but I have a question about Bipolar if you don't mind indulging me?
My daughter is 13 years old and she is madly in love with this one boy - as in love as a 13 year old can get I guess. This boy is 14 years old and is Bipolar. We had a bit of falling out with this boy not too long ago for some illegal activity in which my daughter participated in. We quickly put a stop to this activity and my daughter was grounded for quite a while. We tried getting her to stop seeing this kid but anyone with teens will tell you that the more you try to get your child to NOT do something, they are going to try harder to DO it. This boy is not allowed over our house anymore but I know my daughter still meets up with him but she is always with friends. I told my daughter that we may let her hang out with this boy if he comes clean with us. He lied directly to my face about denying the fact that he did this illegal activity when I know for a fact that he did and still does.
I will be truthful, I don't really know that much about Bipolar - other then the basics. But is lying a part of being Bipolar? It seems as if he can't help BUT to lie it seems. He treats my daughter very nice and he is super sweet to her. He seems like a decent enough kid if only he would stop doing this one thing that we don't approve of. His mother said he is on Lithium - this seems like a powerful drug, is it?
Sorry this is so long but if anyone can give me advice on how to proceed with this, I would be very grateful! This is my first exposure to anyone with Bipolar and I feel a little lost.
