The Doctors discuss a shocking case of a mother who has been charged with forcing her children to eat dog feces! The woman did not serve time for her alleged crimes, after pleading no contest to child neglect charges and was given two 7-year suspended prison sentences.
Lou says he believes the mom might not have been jailed due to a possible mental health issue or the circumstantial evidence in the case, noting that no one witnessed the alleged act and she was charged after her kids' accounts. He also explains the mom could one day be reunited with her children, which were taken away from her, if she is able to show she has been rehabilitated and is able to properly care for them.
As for how a parent could do something like this to their children, Dr. Dow believes one possibility is an anti-social personality disorder in the mom. Another possible explanation for such behavior could be due to past abuse or trauma the mom might have been experienced. He also says it could be a combination of both.
"The children are going to need treatment for that severe trauma," Dr. Dow says, noting that despite the horrific nature of the alleged events - which also included reports of physical abuse and the kids not being fed enough food - he feels there is hope for the children and feels they could be effectively treated with the right care. He notes it will not be simple or quick, but very possible.
