My sister is going through her second episode of psychosis after being in remission for 5 years. She has a 6.5 year old daughter.
My sister believes her husband wants to kill her and harm their daughter. Since the husband seems to aggravate her condition, she is currently living with my parents so we can take care of her until she makes a recovery.
We manage to keep her daughter occupied after school (which is only four hours), before she goes to bed. However, every second cant be monitored and and child also misses her mother and notices how she keeps sleeping.
Today my sister told my niece that her father is on a airplane and it will crash if he tries to come to them. Then later she told her that her father only loves things and not people. This confused my niece but my mother quickly distracted her. I am sure the kid is probably scared and confused as she loves her father a lot and he is a nice man. We are also worried that my sister might text or call or say something to my niece’s teachers at school. how do we explain to the kid whats going on without confusing her more?
