NY Times article. Have you read it? What do you think? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/13/m...a-9-year-old-a-psychopath.html?pagewanted=all Snipped from the article: " Michaels problems started, according to his mother, around age 3, shortly after his brother Allan was born. At the time, she said, Michael was mostly just acting like a brat, but his behavior soon escalated to throwing tantrums during which he would scream and shriek inconsolably. These werent ordinary toddlers fits. It wasnt, Im tired or Im frustrated the normal things kids do, Anne remembered. His behavior was really out there. And it would happen for hours and hours each day, no matter what we did. For several years, Michael screamed every time his parents told him to put on his shoes or perform other ordinary tasks, like retrieving one of his toys from the living room. Going somewhere, staying somewhere anything would set him off, Miguel said. These furies lasted well beyond toddlerhood. At 8, Michael would still fly into a rage when Anne or Miguel tried to get him ready for school, punching the wall and kicking holes in the door. Left unwatched, he would cut up his trousers with scissors or methodically pull his hair out. He would also vent his anger by slamming the toilet seat down again and again until it broke."
