Quoting Tiff Pop:" Yes you read right. My five year old son Evan is evil. I don't know what to do. His doctors just recommend ... [snip!] ... bedpan otherwise he tries to run away. Is there ANYONE out there with some type of advice? I am so lost. So alone. So afraid."
As bad as this may sound that is all behavior of someone being a murderer... killing harmless animals is usually a sign of a person being born without a conscious... I suggest you put him away before he actually does what he's saying. It really sounds like a cry for help, I'm so sorry for you and your family but for his own good you should put him in a children's mental hospital, he really sounds like a schizophrenic/ psychopath. It would be for the everyone's well being. Just imagine who he could be 15 years from now...

I am a medical professional, I work as a NP.
This is solid advice, they can't diagnose a mental illness at 5, but they can give him the structure you can't give at home and they can educate him there as well. Hopefully they can correct this as well. ECT works for older children with these issues but you need him committed.

I agree. Like I said before, I just can't jump down her throat without all the facts. Like why wasn't he committed sooner? Were the doctors dragging their feet because of his age or because of trying different meds or what? And like another poster had said, having a kid with those issues can seriously change you. Maybe she was depressed, maybe she wasn't thinking clearly. Who knows.
Quoting Tiff Pop:" Nothing happened to him. He's had a relatively average life surrounded by people that love him. Even ... [snip!] ... up on my child. And he has officially been diagnosed as schizophrenia NOS, bipolar, and antisocial personality disorder."
They can't diagnose antisocial personality disorder in a child that young, but he definitely needs some help. Especially since he's already injuring animals. That's an early sign of sociopathy and can often progress to the torture/killing of people.
Don't blame yourself for any of this, mama, but he NEEDS help. Some people are just wired this way. You're not abandoning him. That would be the case if you didn't get him the help he needs. I hope he gets help before it's too late.
