When do you know that your child has crossed the line from make believe/fanstay to crazy? Apparently in school when asked what he wanted for Christmas my son says a gun so he can kill his brother (which shocks me since they are pretty close). He says he wants to kill animals. That part except for how it was said is somewhat understood because he knows what hunting is and wants to get his license and go with our friends.
He also started having accidents at school. That is ½ medical because he was backed up and it hurt for him to go (the one was about the size of a baseball and you could here him in pain that day). So I think he is regressing again and deciding it is to painful.
I don’t know whether to take him to counseling whether it is a phase that will pass. There is a friend that I think he gets a lot of his ideas from and not sure whether to ban them from playing together again or not.
