My difficult child is completely oblivious to any consequence of what he is doing. He is not able to fathom what has he done wrong. As mentioned in my previous posts, he stopped going to school and watching TV in the basement. No regrets and no sign of understanding the future consequences. He says he wants to go to college and he will succeed but he doesn't understand that he needs to work towards that. We have caught him several times with tobacco in his room and severely warned. He brings them back again and no regreets. Leaves trail in the computer and doesn't worry about parents or others looking over. If I leave some wine or beer finishes up without worrying about the obvious fact that he is the one who has done it. Takes the car without license even after was caught by cops and was given dire warning. Gets aggressive, breaks stuff and doesn't feel that it is wrong. I can go on and on. Basically he doesn't think that any of these are wrong. If we have to call cops he gets upset and asks what did I do wrong? It is like a kid going into a shop, picking up whatever he wants to and not knowing that you have to pay for it. I am really concerned about this. Not sure whether this would fall into behavioral issue or mental disease. If it is former we can punish him (which we tried). If it is later, has anybody encountered this kind of behavior and so what category of mental disease this would fall into.
