I live in California, I am the mother of 4 Kids. My oldest is the one I am writing about. He has been diagnosed with ADHD and depression when he was in 4th grade and just last year he was Diagnosed with Obssesive Defiant Disorder. He steals, he lies, he runs away. He's even gone as far as threatening to stab his father because we took away his skateboard. We have been going to counseling, have called the police, and even tried to recruit the help of the Social Worker that HE called to investigate US for child abuse. It is an up hill battle. I found a letter he wrote perfectly backwards so that the only way you could read it is if you held it in fron of a mirror and read the reflection. It read that he was soon going to get attention when people saw the gun in his hand. I called the police and they just adviced me to take him to counseling! He is turning 18 in 30 days and we want him to get out, but we were told we are still responsible for him until he graduates from High School. Is this true? Does the rest of my family still have to endure his threats? Please help us.
