You : You should give your child's doctor a call and ask for a referral to a child psychologist, psychiatrist or behavioral specialist. You are not alone in dealing with your son's behavior (i have had many parents come to me with similar situations and concerns to yours).

They may be able to suggest new ways of dealing with his behavior. There will probably not be any quick fixes, but with continual therapy and consistent parenting, he will improve over time. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Y do people guilt a suicidal person to think of their loved ones, instead of living for themselves? It's like no one cares how the patient feels.
Loss by suicide: Suicidal impulses are frequently part of illnesses such as depression, psychosis, bipolar disorder, addiction, etc. With treatment, the suicidality remits. Disdaining one's life is not a human being's natural or normal state. People do care about how the patient feels -- and to help him/her get treatment! recognizing the painfulness of losing someone to suicide is just fact, not "guilting.". ...Read more
