Out of control child

Sara - posted on 09/02/2016 ( 6 moms have responded )




He's been threatening to kill us, started years ago. Now we have moved and doesn't want to help with putting anything away, he just went out the front door and I don't know where he is. How do I protect us. He was starting fires days ago and throwing rocks at peoples cars. I'm liable if he kills anyone or injured property. What is a parent to do?

I also posted on the duplicate post. If you want help, please respond! A child who starts fires, threatens to kill people and is not responsive to consequences? He needs help. Now!

Duplicate post...

Like I asked last night... how old is he and what does his therapist suggest?

This is very serious Sara and I wish you and your family strength and healing and I hope your son becomes a loving son again soon.

Have you talked to counsellors, school teachers, drs about it?
Which country do you live in? As there are diff laws, and most crimes committed by kids......go to the juveinile court. As long as you are not complicit in it or neglection and have done the best you can to solve it....you will not be liable.
If worst comes to worst, you may have to send him to boarding school/ special school for disruptive kids.

Of course, we arent experts and you would know what to do best.

So what have you done about it so far?
How old is he?
Is he in counseling or therapy?
Why is he behaving like this.
You haven't really told us much to be able to help you.
