What kind of behavior are you talking about.  Wouldn't counseling be a viable option.  I don't know if they have boarding schools for that young with the main purpose being bad behavior.  Mainly it is for teens and their behaviors.

WTF. I hope you are a troll.

Wanting to get rid of your 7 year old may be causing their problems.

Why are you looking for a program for teens if you have a 7 year old?  The child probably needs to be tested for learning disabilities, and/or mental illness like bipolar first.

I guess they figure that parents would keep kids that young home and put them in therepy.

what kind of behavior? Have you talked to your pedi? If it's really that bad and you have honestly tried every discipline you can think of and have given it you all maybe there is something wrong. what is a boarding school going to do??

My children attended a boarding/day school, but it was for the academically gifted.  They wouldn't accept any behavioral problems and all students had psych evaluations before being accepted.

He needs love and support and Definetly not distance between you and him! What's his diet like? Food dyes and other things can cause behavior problems.... What other underlying issues could be causing his behavior? He's 7 he needs help not to shipped away. If anything maybe something structured and focused on healthy Dicipline like karate. Do you hit him? Do you isolate him when he's not behaving? Do you say he's bad infront of him and others?
