My 15 year old son is abusive and deficates on himself.
I am a forty six and recently divorced. I have two kids. My daughter is 11 and my son is 15. Since my divorce my sons behavior is getting worse and worse. My kids witnessed my now ex husband be physically abusive towards me and my son had begun mimicing his fathers actions. Now that it is just us three in the house my son is awful and has no control over his anger. He shoves me and pushes me. He is also abusive to his sister. He will punch and kick her as well in fits of anger. In an argument with me he hit me in the jaw and pushed his sister down fracturing her wrist. I knew nothing else to do so I called the police. Since then he has stopped talking completley and refuses to go to the bathroom. I have had to pick him up from school as he has deficated on himself over five times. I have also found containers of excrement under his bed and in his bookbag. He will not eat and hardly sleeps. I love my child however I am at my wits end and rufuse for my daughter to live in fear of her own brother. I cant take anymore and dont know where to turn.
First off you need some ((((HUGS))) - - this is really a bad situation and you need some serious, fast help for your son.
I'm glad you called the police when your son assaulted you and his sister - this behavior should never, ever be tolerated. If he lays a finger on you or his sister again, do not hesitate to call the police back.
You need to find help for your family. You can call your local city office of mental health and ask where to find a Dr. for your son to see. Talk to his school counselor and ask about resources/help. Go to your local police station and ask for help/resources.
There is help out there it just can be tricky to find sometimes, especially depending on where you live.
