Relief

Today, our 9-year-old daughter was removed from our home and placed into a home for children too violent to function in a family setting. I can't stop crying but my wife hasn't been this happy in years. She was actually smiling as our daughter was restrained and forced out the front door. FML

I would be crying too! that must be so hard to go through, I wonder/hope maybe your wife was smiling because your daughter may be able to get the help she needs? or it could have just been so draining trying to deescelate violence all the time that she's happy for a break and the tears may come later 🤷‍♀️ I obviously don't know much about this situation at all either. but again I'm so sorry for what you're going through

Just want you to know that I misclicked on YDI, sorry. And sorry for what you're going through, no matter what happened before. Maybe it will help your daughter in the long run to be elsewhere with (hopefully) psychologically trained supervisors.

I believe there is something very wrong here.
The little girl is 9 years old, ffs and now ontop of everything else she is going through, she is going to feel abandoned by her own parents.

The fact that your wife smiled... yeah, serious red flag for me. If I were in that situation, I would NOT be smiling.

I understand both of you.
Having a child with anger issues is hard. Don't feel guilty about not crying or her being happy. Getting a diagnosis for anything that is wrong with your child is amazing.
I have a child now grown who was diagnosed with autism I cried and laughed because of the nearly four years to get her diagnosed.

Your child was probably acting out due to being raised by a psychotic monster and an enabler. If this happens to be the case maybe you should divorce the psycho and work on building a healthier bond with your child where she can heal and be safe from everything that's driving her to violence, and grow to be a healthier and happier child. Usually when you take away a child's hurt they get better.

Was your wife the main care giver?

Your kid was restrained before being led away. That's not normal.i don't think it's odd that the primary care giver would react weirdly at that point. I think you both need therapy.
