Hi All, Last night during my 8 yr old difficult child's rage.... he started kickin the living room window while laying on the sofa. I was telling him to knock it off, and to use his "coping skills" and I turned to walk away to go cool down as I was getting very frustrated with him and he decided to throw himself through the window! The window shattered in to a million little pieces and several huge sharp slivers. He got cut up but nothing that was serious. No stitches needed! He was so lucky!! I explained to him how he could have died if one piece of glass would have cut his neck or he could have went blind if it got in his eyes. It scared the heck out of me and all I could do was yell at him right after it happened. I guess it was my fear, but I do feel bad for yelling. I was just so mad that he he wuld do that to himself. I didn't care abut the window at all.... I was just really upset at him because he could have really got injured bad. He does not show any empathy or remorse. He doesn't have that in him at all....he just wasn't born with it. He did say sorry mommy after seeing how mad I was, but trying to explain that his Life could have ended that night...just didn't register with him. I know he is only 8 but he doesn't have a grasp on death, and that it is so final and that life is over. So this now leaves me to think...... What's Next?? He was hospitalized last month for 8 days, and he still Rages every single day at home. He is still not stable in my opinion. I got a new psychiatrist for him and she does not want to increase his medications or add another mood stabilizer at this time. Funny, because she straight out asked him "Do you want to harm yourself?" and his answer to her was "YES". Then she asked him "How do you want to harm yourself?" and he said "cut my neck with a knife"!! (of course I have NO KNIVES in the house at all) She continued to ask him "why do you want to hurt yourself?" and he said "because I want to die". She went on to ask him if he would like to hurt anyone else and he response was "Yes, my sister!" HELLO? It doesn't take a PHD to know that he is a danger to himself and others. So why didn't she do anything about it?? UGH! Sooooo frustrating!
