Hello we are a family of 5. Myself, my husband, my year 6 year old daughter, my 11 year old daughter, his 17 year old son, and our 2 year old daughter. My husband plays Dad to everyone and I play Mom to every one. Neither of our ex's are in the picture. Our 17 year old son has been in and out of our home since he was 13 due to several conflicts with the law. He has breaking and entering, possession of firearms, assaulting a teacher, assaulting a police officer. He has come home for no more than 3 months before violating the law again. He is violent with everyone in the home including his father. He has punched, hit kicked all of us. He has held us in a house at knife point, and even threatned to kill me and the girls. His mother took him from his father at 4 years of age and went to NY. He was found at 13 by DCF and returned to his father. We do not know what he went through and will NOT talk. He has been diagnosed Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), ODD, conduct disorder, and ADD. Please help. They are trying to return him to our home again and we are SCARED. We do not want to do more harm to him, we love him, but we are scared for our other children's safety. We have tried therapy, bu he runs away before the appointments. We don't know what to do, but Department of Juvenile Justice is saying we HAVE to allow him to return. Can and will these kids actually kill or do they just use it to manipulate to get their way?
