My mother is 58 years old and has 5 children, two who live with her and her husband. The kids are 12 and 16. The other 3, including myself, are all over 30 with our own children. Her entire life she has struggled with depression, but never did anything about it. She has always had paranoid thoughts (in my opinion)such as thinking that the CIA or FBI is watching her or slashed her tires, etc. Now her behavior... once again, in my opinion... has gotten worse. She has taken her kids out of school so their minds won't get corrupted or brainwashed by others. She is the only one who knows the truth about the economy, or 911 or God or whatever. My question is, that normal? She always seems to have some sort of proof for her "ideas," and if you even try and question her about any of them she gets very upset and says you are part of the "herd" and are being naive. I am worried about her kids. She says she home-schools them, but I have no clue what they are being taught. They don't have any friends and rarely leave the home. Am I wrong in thinking there is something really unhealthy about this? Please help in any way you can. Thank you!
