Our expert says:
Well, obviously, the mother having been on drugs is highly significant. She may have the flu, or be experiencing withdrawal from one or more of the drugs she usually takes, making her flu-ey and irritable. None of this of course justifies her screaming at her child. No drug addict is able to be a good mother, and some are atrocious mothers. Their allegiance is to the drug more than to any other human, child or otherwise.
Yo haven't explained why she is living with you, or under what agreed conditions ( I would never allow any drug addict who was still even potentially still consuming drugs, to live with me. Maybe child welfare ought to look into the best interests of the child, and the mother should promptly get into rehab, either provitely or through some state facility. There is no possible benefit for her to be encouraged or enabled to continue indulging her addictions.
