I'm not sure if I'm posting to the right place but this is the only place I found which would allow me to post. I have a 7 year old boy (we also have other kiddos) who was recently diagnosed with Conduct Disorder. He is currently on his first stay at a treatment center to get some help. He made some very alarming threats and statements which led to him being placed in a treatment center. He threatened to kill family members and even went as far as planning to kill them in their sleep.. he took a large butcher type knife and climbed into their beds to see if they were awake.. one was so he changed his mind and put the knife back and went back to bed. His biological mother has schizophrenia and bipolar disorders but that's all we really know. She drank and did drugs during her pregnancy and he was born with tremors. We are homeschooling all of our children this year in order to better get a handle on his condition. (Doctors' appointments and therapies are so frequent that there's no way they could all be in a traditional school setting at this time). With homeschooling comes the task of making him do things he would rather not do. For example, he will need to sometimes read. Sometimes he will need to write neatly and do his studies (just as you might expect from any other student). Well, when he is faced with something he would rather not do or that does not please him- he apparently jumps to homicidal thoughts. He likes to fantasize in his mind and has gone as far as what I stated above as well as just going and grabbing a knife and squeezing the handle as if he's actually going to do it but instead choosing to put the knife back. I'm not sure how to properly homeschool him without worrying that he will do something to myself or his brothers (out of jealousy or paranoia). I am really trying to do some research online but there really isn't much out there for conduct disorder and homeschooling/teaching children wired this way. I'm hoping to find some insight within this threat/website. Thank you so much to anyone who has taken the time to read my post and an especially large thank you to anyone who comments. I really appreciate any insight or help or being pointed in the right direction that I can get. I'm going into this pretty blindly and very lost.
