    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Prior to taking my son to school, I took his cell phone because he did not do the previous night's homework. He pleaded that I return it to him which I did not. He slapped my arm so hard that it left red finger print marks on it for a period of time and said "F you", "F all of you". I am completely lost in knowing how to handle something like this. Please offer some advise, I am desperate!

    I am a 38 yr old dad who also works in Juvenile Corrections. one thing I would have done if this is usual for him is to show him what he did. and anger is never an emotion it is am symptom of something else bothering him and being 15 he my be uncomfortable talking to you about it. The worse thing to do is ignore it because that makes him think that it was ok. try talking to him when he is calmed down and you have collected yourself.
