Regardless of what is really going on in Charlie Sheen's head, the first priority at this point in time should be to ensure the safety of his young children. They cannot defend themselves or call for help if they are placed in danger.

It has been reported by TMZ that Sheen's estranged wife Brooke Mueller has obtained a temporary restraining order barring Sheen from coming within 100 feet of her or their children until their next court appearance. Mueller has accused Sheen of threatening her and reportedly fears for the safety of their children when in his care. Sheen, on the other hand, is now alleging that Mueller is a drug addict and is vowing to fight for custody of his twin boys.

These dueling allegations will be yet again played out in the media and in a Los Angeles courtroom to determine if the former 'Two and a Half Men' actor is indeed a danger to Mueller and his children. At this point, there are more questions than answers, but one thing is certain -- both Sheen and Mueller need serious help to deal with their substance abuse issues (if they are presently battling addiction) and should seek out a professional to learn how to co-parent properly.
