can someone with bipolar take care of three children with or without taking there meds

Insight Psychological Staff answered

Without taking their meds is going to make caring for children difficult. Children need stability and predictability, so it is important that the individual is on their medication.

On meds, raising children will still be difficult at times (as it is with all parents), but someone with bipolar can still be a great parent. As I recomend to all parents, the more support you have from friends and family, the better.
