The guidance counselor got a semi-anonymous call from someone who is a friend of Fake Gangsta's mom. This woman reports that FG's mom's drinking has been out of control. She's been leaving FG home alone with his 2 year old sister for hours at a time, has imposed no curfew so FG is out at all hours of the night, the house is a disgusting mess and they frequently fight loudly. She wanted to let us know and she planned on calling Child Services (as would another friend of FG's mom). Receiving this information made it necessary for the guidance counselor to call Child Services. So I expect this to be a tough week for FG.
You can only hope that state involvement would force his mom to step up a little and really do some parenting. But I'm not holding my breath.
