whats wrong mum

The mother had been on drugs eg LSD and cocaine and ecstacy for about 3 years pror to her conception of her daughter.In all proabailty this habit was not kicked during pregnancy and even if it was what would be the possibilty of the child being born with a mental problem,Will mention the father was on weed and mandrax at the time of conception as well.

I deseperatly ask this as this daugheter is now 19 and has a son of her own.She is impossible and has been going to physciatrists and psycologists for years who have just said they give up.

She is totally irresonsible, selfish, has no self conifdence and not intersted in educating or working herself. She only thinks of herself.She has also been drinking execcessily and maybe some meale entertaining.There could be a case of drugs here although she denies this.

She shows no inerest in her son and is quick to palm him off to accommodtae her social life,I do not believe that her parents have ever disclosed this medical fact and as no other treatment has helped,we now look to possible physcial damage that may have occured
,She became problematic when she moved to her father when she was 13,She was always allowed her own way and spoilt rotten.'''' she has always had a learning problem and has difficulty in concentrating
One cannot get through to her, It is like an empty barrell up there.Thanks

Good question. One of the problems with illegal and illicit drugs is that it's not practical to do proper research to get good answers to such questions. And the issue is even more complex than it appears, as, for instance, the sort of people who may be heavily into such drugs during pregnancy, may also be ingesting really poor nutrition, alcohol, and other bad habits.
The impact on the pregnancy via the mother is obviously a major posibility - thopugh there's also so evidence that drug habits may cause harm via the father, too. And then, such a person or couple are not likely to provide top-notch nutrition and other components of early baby and child care, either.
And apart from the genetic and purely physical possibiolities of harm, the psychological upbringing and welfare of such a child is probably also well short of ideal. Even where the parents are entirely drug-free and healthy, a child who is over-indulged and spoiled, and/or neglected, nay develop personality problems and bad behaviour.
It may indeed be very difficult to "get through to her". Maybe the main focus needs to be primarily on caring for and protecting the child to limit the chance of history repating itself.
