My 12 year old son told me last night he likes his evil personality and continues by saying it pleases him to cause fear in other people including his little 3 year old sister! He is a bright straight A student with little friends. He is a very caring young man but lately he has been very hateful and aggervating. He likes the attention he gets from being strange. Now I love him very much even all the strange things about him but he is having some troubling thoughts and even said when I make him mad he day dreams of pushing me down the stairs. He calls me a strict mother but believe me I am not. I like to stick to the rules and I have my days that are worse than others but I never spank or belittle my children! Even when I do yel at them I constantly reitterate that I hate yelling and I really do. He has never had any strong dicipline instilled in him because he was not a bad child but here lately I have been wanting to reconsider my forms of punishment. I called our local counseling and set him up to speak with someone but my biggest fear is that our relationship will get way worse if I do not do something now. ANY ADVICE OR CHAT WOULD BE APPRECIATED as I do not know what to do!
