I am past the point of behavior management. I need to take him somewhere for treatment, cannot afford the cost of boot camp but do have insurance. He is disrupting the household which is just me and his younger brother. His father died 31/2 years ago but his behavior preceded that. He is defiant, manipulative, disrespectful toward all authority, he is seductive, manipulative and physically aggressive as he cannot manage his rage, which flips on and off like a switch. I do not know where to turn. I’ve tried therapy, had him hospitalized for depressive comments, taken away his toys. I am scared for him and running out of emotional energy myself.
