My daughter found this youtube series of videos by a young boy called Nauj Grebnights. This young boy (aged 14 ) looks and sounds very disturbed. The messages about his videos seem to be unable to tell if this is acting or not. Is there a hot line in America that anyone can call to alert someone about this boy? Watch it and see what you think. Does he need help or not? He is someones' son and maybe they are not aware of what is happening with him. Thanks everyone.

It's been interesting to see all the different comments. It just goes to show how difficult it is to know if something is wrong or not! What a terrible indictment of our lives that young men and women have to act so strangely to get notice taken of them. Is that 5 minutes of fame so attractive that anything goes to get it? Or is it simply that they really don't have any one near to them, giving them the attention they they should have? Watching theses videos has shown me a world out there- much to my shame-that I really did not know about, unlike my own children, who are looking at stuff like this all the time! Which was why when one of them got very worried about this particular one I felt that I needed to see what it was all about. Thanks everyone for your help.

I didn't think the kid was autistic (too social & verbal) or on drugs (too lucid) so I did a little research. If you Google his name, Nauj Grebnights, he pops up on several video sights. It seems to me like he is just making and posting videos on Youtube as a character he has developed in order to achieve some level of fame and notoriety. I believe he has another character out there named Fred. I watched some of those videos and they are similar, but different. I've taught plenty of kids with varying disorders such as autism, aspergers, and even bipolar kids. He does not exhibit any of the classic behaviors on a consistent basis. It almost seems as if he has to stop and think about them beforehand if you watch closely enough. It just doesn't jive for me. Also, he would have to be pretty savvy to be able to do the video like he does. I think if you Google him, you will see exactly what I mean. His videos are probably getting the exact reaction he wants.

He looks like a typical teenage boy playing with a camera on youtube. Though I would note his mannerisms lead me to believe he may have some form of autism as another poster already said. I have worked with mentally and physically handicapped children over the years and the irracted jerks and movements, the complete distraction when looking at the cuff fo his sleeve, the studdering, etc look similar to those I have seen before. Also, the excessive agressive and even sexual behaviors are very typical of those with mental handicaps. He speaks of teachers having crushes on him. One of the boys I worked with in the high school special education class would openly masterbate in the classroom. We would have to make him stop and often that was not an easy ordeal.

I would offer this video link:

as an example of what I mean. I sincerely doubt his parents or school have not noticed his behvaior, especially since he speaks of being in detention often.

Your concern may be valid, just not completely on mark.

I just watched 2 of them. He seems to me to be mentally handicapped in some way? Or maybe some sort of Autism or something? Someone I used to work with acted a little bit like that (nowhere NEAR as bad though) and he had told me before that his doctor said he had some form of Autism. What I would do is call your local authorities and see if there is anything you can do and warn them about this kid. He does seem a bit strange.

I did weird stuff like that too when I was younger. I made videos pretending to be a newscaster and stuff. The videos were really emabressing and I talked about weird stuff too. I think hes an only child like me who is just extremely bored and going through a weird faze. I wouldnt be too concerned about him.

Try watching several of them. Yes, he is ranting about detention, then about girls and then about punching people. I wondered if he may be using drugs of some kind due to his erratic movements along with the rest. He is always looking around to see if someone is coming and in one video he says he thinks he saw somone but no one was there! Maybe I'm reacting over nothing but it disturbed my daughter so much (and she is a regular youtube watcher). If I lived there I would try myself but I am in Thailand so not so easy from here. Thanks for your help.

I watched them just now and I would have to say that perhaps he's minorly mentally handicapped. I do agree that some of his actions and words seem a bit aggressive or mentally unstable, but I'm guessing that the school is aware and his parents. I doubt that he could hide it well enough to pass in public without being noticed. As for the hotline, I wouldn't have a clue if there is one.
