My husband contacted his ex-wife to fill her in on what's going on with difficult child, although she has never told husband anything that went on with difficult child when he was with her. husband was on a need to know basis. So husband asked her if difficult child ever asaulted her and she stated he punched her in her back, and has pushed her several times. He asked about the dog and the ex said that he would bite the dog to the point that the dog would scream in pain. She said that the dog would see difficult child coming and it would run to her for protection as he would "terrorize"the poor dog. She said he would bite the dog right in front of her and she is only (5"2) and about 100 pounds and difficult child is 5"9 and 190 pounds--she would jump on difficult child to get him off the dog. husband asked if he ever started fires and she said he had started 2 fires in the house and several fires in the yard where she had received complaints about this. She also stated that he had gone into a neighbors yard and hid under the tarp where he stored a tractor and left some of his personal belongings. She said that the man found out and called the police and they lectured difficult child. She also said that his counselor stated that difficult child has a very dark side to him. She said he would take knives and throw them into the walls. The counselor and hospital told her he was on the road to Antisocial peronality disorder. Why did she feel that any of this information was not important to share. I am really scared of this kid and now knowing he assaulted both parents and sibling why wouldnt he attack me? especially that I am the person he hates.. husband couldnt believe what she was telling him now after all we have been through. I am just really angry to learn this after 5 months.. I am now even more convinced that he cannot live here with us. Absoultey NO WAY.. I will not stand for him coming home.
