I'm positive my 11 year old stepchild has some sort of mental illness. Within the last week, he got Child Services involved, hid our rent money, and stole my phone charger. Thank God those accusations were proven false to Child Services and they aren't involved. When our rent money went missing off of my bedroom dresser, we searched his room from head to toe and he was laughing. My husband and I were obviously upset and he was in a wonderful mood asking if we could play the happy song. He never got offended or even asked why we were searching his room,. We called the police but couldn't do anything because he's a minor and it'd come back on us. We found the money folded in my husbands shorts pocket. There is absolutely no way we put it there. He enjoys pushing and shoving his siblings who are 4 and 5. He will have a big smile on his face while they are crying their eyes out! He thinks things are funny that most people wouldn't. He has zero friends at school and is very disrespectful to adults and teachers. He has a serious problem lying. My husband took him to a psychologist a week and a half ago and they gave him an antidepressant. The appointments are $170 a pop, so I can't afford anymore at this moment. Help please because IDK what to do anymore. He's mean and I just don't understand. This last week has been hell and he's getting worse!
