Nine-year-old JJ violently attacks his mum Bobbi on an almost daily basis. He has stabbed her, tried to push her under a truck and even plotted to kill her. And it’s not just his mother who suffers – JJ was excluded from school after he left two of the teachers needing hospital treatment for a detached retina and a suspected broken wrist. *** Bobbi says: “He has this absolute anger and strength you wouldn’t imagine. He punches me, kicks me, pulls my hair. “He had tried to stab me a number of times, so we took away all the knives, scissors, anything that was sharp. “He tried to involve his older sister. He told her he wanted her to get a knife, and said when I was asleep that night he was going to stab me. *** "I don’t have a choice, do I?” she says. “When all this was happening three years ago, I rang social services and begged them for help. "School rang them and told them that this mum really needs help, I asked them for help, for respite. I just needed time to get my head together and have time with my girls. "They told me that my son was not in danger because I don’t lose my temper with him, because I don’t hit him. I don’t put my son in danger, I did not need help.” http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/real-life-stories/my-son-keeps-trying-kill-3707963#ixzz35LGRBXGB bbm - disgusting.. Apparently UK helplines get 11,00 calls a year from parents who are being abused by their kids. So what would YOU do with a son like this? Having dealt with some temporary violent episodes with my own daughter, I cannot *imagine* living in fear of your own child, like this woman does. Has anyone seen the program mentioned in the article?
