New YouTube channel recommend. Psychology in Seattle.
He apparently has 340K subs and 3 videos in series on the case. His vids look to run about 30 minutes. Just now listening. Seems good enough to recommend.
Ruby Franke & Jodi Hildebrandt #1 (Therapist Reacts)
ETA: He's saying sadistic, too. Yep. Called it.
(if you watch this and get to the part where she's threatening to cut the head off a stuffed animal if the young girl doesn't stop cutting stuff in her home...the developmentally appropriate response would be the use of re-direction
which would be to give the child a pair of child safe scissors and PLENTY of appropriate stuff to cut...paper, playdough, lettuce, green onions (make a salad), yarn, or whatever you can find that is acceptable to cut. Not sure the age of the child, but 4.5 - 5-ish year olds are notorious for cutting their hair. Give them something they CAN cut. Buy a bunch of thrift store dolls if you need to but...let them cut.
Why? Because they need
to cut. Compliment their cutting and involve them...you're getting good at using the scissors. Would you like to help make the salad tonight?
Notice she's doing this in front of her other children who are laughing at it which heightens the intensity
of the interaction and therefore makes it more damaging. Ruby Franke is a hideous and sadistic person who knows exactly nothing about child development when she was raising SIX of her own and dispensing psycho advice to others on youtube while inadvertently filming recording her own abuse. Yet another example of stupid mistakes that criminals make.)
