Hello! I just assumed custody this past April of my nephew (long story) and he is failing 3 classes in school...he is depressed, angry, abusive, emotional, and doesn't appear to "care" about anyone or anything but himself. He is always making fun of and hurting our other children's feelings and has also destroyed some of our personal property. We have taken him every couple of weeks to see a therapist because we know he has a lot to work through...but are at a loss for how to help him. We know he desperately needs help---wondering if there is a more intense therapy we should consider for him? He won't talk to the therapist and open up...he just answers the questions to get out of there...if anyone has any advice please let me know. Thanks!
