My son is 11 (almost 12). He hasn't actually been diagnosed with Asperger's but they have told me his behavior indicates this may be a possibility. About 3 weeks ago he had a really bad day at school. He told on some kids for leaving the classroom early and then they started calling him names. Since then he has become very aggressive and very angry at everyone and everything. He gets mad over things like a neighbor using a soccer ball that we had left outside. This incident went as far as him throwing punches at me, cussing, and finally to where he didn't want to live anymore. He doesn't know why he gets mad so easy and says he knows he needs help but doesn't want any. He wont talk to anyone at all. He is now suspended from school because a kid called him a baby and he punched the kid in the face. He gets mad about the littlest things and explodes out of control saying he doesn't want to live anymore and then about a half hour later he is the most loving kid ever. I hate having to be careful what I say and do so I don't "piss" him off. I am a single mom and don't have the support from his dad as he thinks this is all for show. Its beyond that. The counselors say I should admit him to the hospital but I can't bring myself to do that yet. Any ideas???
