    Default Disturbing incident

    Ive been living with my two children for 3 months now.
    The other night my seven year old son was brandishing a very large kitchen knife and came towards me with a silly grin on his face.

    On previous occasions he stabbed me with a fork (albeit lightly) and hard with a sharp pencil.

    I asked him repeatedly to put it down. No answer. I explained it was dangerous and he might cut himself. No answer.

    I yelled at him, then he put it down and forgot about it.

    Later that night he said he would like to cut his sister and make her bleed.

    A week before he told his grandmother he wanted to hurt her until she was dead.

    What is going on?

    You need to get him to a psych immediately. This behaviour is not normal.

    Where were your kids before this?

    Agree you need to get him in to see a psych as fast as you can. Please don't leave wait, it doesn't seem like very normal 7 year old behavior!

    Oh gosh that sounds frightening and I would take away all "weapons" and keep everybody as safe as you can.

    Echoing the others - get an emergency psych appointment.

    Can your daughter stay with grandma until you get into a doctor? For safety's sake?

    I'd be inclined to go to the mental health unit at the children's hospital for assessment. That sounds very worrying.
