Sherry claims she is absolutely terrified of her 8-year-old son and his violent outbursts. She claims her son kills animals, stole the neighbor’s dog, and crashed his grandfather’s car! Sherry says her elementary school son is a genius who opened a credit online and purchased over $750 in items. Sherry blames her son’s behavior on his father, Todd, who she says lets their son do “whatever he wants.” Todd says his son is a “normal boy that’s a bit unruly.” He says his son’s behavior is a result of all the prescription medications that Sherry has had him on since he was 3 years old. Todd says Sherry doesn’t have the patience to be a mother and is looking for “quick fix solutions” to their son’s behaviors. Is there still hope for 8-year-old Douglas? Can these parents agree on a plan to help their son?

It‘s no more  “normal” to kill animals than it is to be a serial killer. In fact, killing animals is how many serial killers get started.

Omg. I just watched the video with the 8yr old by the tub. He is absolutely in pain. So much negativity and psychological abuse by the mom. So much neglect by the dad due to his denial.
