  • NOBODY should give up on a 12 year old.

    Your sister needs to GROW UP and realize that she is failing her child.

  • He def needs help. That is very inappropriate/disrespectful behavior for his age. For any age really! I would talk to your sister. Im sure she is taking this harder than anyone else. Her first step would prob be to talk to the school counselor and his dr. Then go from there. GL

  • He is def old enough to know better and he will only get worse if this isnt addressed asap

  • Where is his father? Have there been any big changes in his life recently?

    This behavior usually doesn't come out of "nowhere" - was he an angry toddler?

    How is he doing at school? First step would be make sure everyone is safe, then counselors and his doctor need to be involved.

  • His father is working abroad,he stopped schooling because he doesnt do his school tasks,writing,projects,he ignores them.He beats his classmates whenever he wants.He was an angry toddler i guess,he started acting like this since 3.

  • How is this up for discussion? Is your sister just refusing to deal with it?

    Take him to the doctor, get a treatment plan and medication, let the kid know that there is hope and he's not actually evil. He's probably so upset with himself and sad that he can't even think straight.

    He's 12. He's a child. SOMEONE needs to be an adult here and take care of him - sounds like it should have been done a long time ago.

  • I certainly hope that you are not referring to him as "the devil" when he is around.

  • I am trying my best not to shout on him or throwing his words back,im jus human sometimes when i see him shouting on his mom,i also lose my temper but in the end i still pity on him,her mom i think is totally gave up on him but il try to convince her to seek a proffesional help.
