i watch (as i mentioned in another discussion) a thing about kids with schizophrenia and some were very violent and had tried to kill their siblings (literally) and threaten to kill their parents.. now im not trying to give schizophrenia a bad name just that was what the documentary was about lol.. but if you had an unstable child (for whatever reason whether its mental illness or just the kids just has anger problems) and has tried to kill their siblings and you or has hurt them and seems to be esculating what would you do? i mean sure you dont want to send the one away with the issues but then again keeping them around and not watching them 24/7 could end up killing one of your other children, pets, or you... what do you think wold be the best option? and you had already done the therapy and medications route with no real help.. would you protect yourself and other children and pets or try to figure out a way of having security around that one child more to where they wouldnt have to leave?

Well what ever may be the case the child is mine, so i have to take care of him/her and other kids too, if the behavior is violent, i may be compelled to keep in another room.. Thank you so much for this nice discussion,but sorry for late response, cheers God bless you. Prof

yeah but if you keep them in their room too much you could get into trouble and it may just make them worse for they feel like a reject or neglected child

as a parent.. its yer job toprotect yer children. even if thats from one of yer offspring. if all other avenues had been explored to no avail.. as hard as it would be, id have the child creating the danger institutionalized. i really woulddnt be left with any other choice.

The kid needs to be rehabilitated. He needs special help and special attention and should not be mixed with other children since they would need some special attention. There has to be a facility where such kids can be safely kept while you're away from home. They can't be left alone nor with other normal kids.
