Limits of obedience


My parents made me go to psychiatric reclusion, because of some issues I am lowering thru fasting (they h8) Totally ignoring what I think I am now taking dangerous pills with controversial (perm) side effects. I do because of obeying them, but must I ?


As-Salamu ‘Alaikum,

Parents can and should attempt to help their child cope with problems before consulting a psychologist. However, there are some situations where outside help is necessary. In fact, (informed) parents who do not obtain appropriate medical care for their children are considered negligent.
