A mom tried to cure her daughter’s autisim by making her drink bleach.
The unnamed mother was caught after her husband reported her to cops for sneaking drops of the substance into the child’s drink after reading that it was a ‘miracle mineral solution’ on Facebook.
Her behavior saw the Indiannapolis Metropolitan PD remove the child from her home, according to Fox 59.
The so-called ‘miracle mineral solution’ has been touted as a cure-all online, even though it is just bleach.
Sherry Quinn, from the Applied Behavioral Center for Autism said it was common for parents to try and treat their child’s autism, even though it is incurable.
She told MailOnline: ‘Taking things into their own hands is something that many parents have done out of desperation, out of hope.
‘Parents reach out for whatever they can to help their child. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.’
