I really dont know where to post this but I am hoping it will get a lot of exposure here.
A friend of mine has an 11 year old son who has major anger issues which she is trying her best to deal with, but he is out of control. She is desperately begging for help to deal with him as she has tried as much as she can and has now hit a wall.
She is paying for him to see a psychiatrist, attend private boys school which he is on the boarder of being kicked out of, she is on the waiting list to see a psychologist and she just doesnt know what else she can do. No body seems to know where the anger comes from and therefore are not sure what they should be doing to treat it.
I really dont have any more info as she isnt a very open person and usually doesnt ask for help, but today she has posted photos on face book of the damage he has done to her house - holes in walls, fixtures smashed etc. The police are constantly being called to her house by her neighbours when he goes off... my biggest concern is her other children having to witness it. She has another son who is 10 and 3 little girls aged 2-8 and I would hate to think what sort of damage - emotionally and physically, having a sibling in the house doing this is going to cause them.
What can she do? Who else can she talk to? She doesnt have a lot of money and most of her spare cash is going into all these private Dr's etc to try and help but its just not working....
ANY advice at all will be really appreciated!
Thanks so much
