  • Has anyone taken the time to talk to him about this? Yes it is a strange behavior for a child this age and usually they don't just start doing something like this without having seen it done or having it done to them. I'm just saying if it were me I would not just punish him and let it be at that. I would be taking him to the doctor seeing if he might have been abused himself and taking him to a child psychologist that will be able to help him.

    Good Luck!

  • What has the school done besides suspend him?

    They need to take him to his pediatrician & get a referral to a child therapist.
