Sheena Upton, who shot to overnight infamy after purportedly injecting Botox into her eight-year-old daughter, is taking parenting classes and undergoing mental health counseling, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

Upton and her two daughters, along with several other family members, visited with social workers from the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services earlier this week.

The visit took place at the offices of DCFS after Upton became concerned that the media would stake out her house if the visit occurred there.

"Sheena will now be under direct supervision of the department for the next six months, which she is completely agreeable to," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.

"Sheena seems to be willing to do the work required to make sure she keeps custody of her children."

Upton went on national television, claiming to be a fictitious character named Kerry Campbell, and said she had injected her daughter with Botox, causing a national outcry.

Upton then made the bombshell announcement that she made it all up, and subsequently claimed that she never actually injected her daughter with Botox at all.

Upton lives in Southern California with her two daughters and another family member since the scandal erupted.

"Sheena is beginning to grasp what she did to her daughter," the source says. "Sheena will have two family members living with her and her daughters for at least the next six months.

"The DCFS investigation into the matter will remain open for at least the next six months. Social workers will determine at the end of that time if the case should be closed, or remain open.

"Sheena is taking parenting classes and undergoing mental health counseling," the source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
