"The morning of the pants incident, Michael continued to argue with me on the drive. He would occasionally apologize and seem remorseful. Right before we turned into his school parking lot, he said, "Look, Mom, I'm really sorry. Can I have video games back today?"

"No way," I told him. "You cannot act the way you acted this morning and think you can get your electronic privileges back that quickly."

His face turned cold, and his eyes were full of calculated rage. "Then I'm going to kill myself," he said. "I'm going to jump out of this car right now and kill myself."

That was it. After the knife incident, I had told him that if he ever said those words again, I would take him straight to the mental hospital, no ifs, ands, or buts. I did not respond, except to pull the car into the opposite lane, turning left instead of right.

"Where are you taking me?" he said, suddenly worried. "Where are we going?"

"You know where we are going," I replied.

"No! You can’t do that to me! You’re sending me to hell! You’re sending me straight to hell!"

I pulled up in front of the hospital, frantically waving for one of the clinicians who happened to be standing outside. "Call the police," I said. "Hurry."

Michael was in a full-blown fit by then, screaming and hitting. I hugged him close so he couldn’t escape from the car. He bit me several times and repeatedly jabbed his elbows into my rib cage. I’m still stronger than he is, but I won’t be for much longer."

This child is a master manipulator. His rages come when it doesnt work. Why does she keep doing the same thing qnd getting the same result? That is the definition of insanity, right? Mom, step back and read what you just wrote.. Leave the other stuff out. Maybe a new perspective will help you help him.

This is ridiculous. Why cant they diagnose this kid? Because there is no code for BRAT! Sorry mom, you blew it, somewhere way back in his childhood was the moment when you should have taken your hand to his ass and taught him that there would be consequences far worse than losing a video game. Your child still does not understand that he controls his world because you did not teach him how. Staying calm when he calls you bitch? Really? And before you say I dont know, I do, because I raised one like this. Instead of bemoaning his issues, I got to work, a lot of love and time teaching him social skills and my hand on his ass when he broke the rules. Anyway, now you have a big shit that you are scared of because you did not handle this when he was a little shit. What do we do? I have no idea. But I hope the next generation starts PARENTING instead of saying any kid who doesnt fit the angel mold (I have one of those too, what a pleasure) is mentally ill. No, they are individuals and require whatever type of parenting they need to learn life skills...one of them being, you dont call your mother a bitch. Period.
