My dad would have straight up punch me and I wouldn't blame him. Someone did not get spanked enough as a child, but since he wants to behave like a child maybe you should punish him like one.

Fuck that "child abuse" shit people are tossing around now; just spank his ass until the shit is red as an orchard apple. He has to learn somehow.

Better that than having the "real world" hit him in the ass...

I believe if the child has any sort of behavioral issues, OP would be understanding and would know how to handle the situation. My brother has bi-polar disorder, on top of schizophrenia, and never behaved that way. Yes, ever disorder affects people differently, however, the FML makes the kid out to be a brat, not a behavioral challenged child who is having a melt down.

My good friend is bi-polar. You would never know it unless he told you. Of course he is on medication for it. But when he has one of his episodes, he "shuts out the world" gets very depressed, quiet and doesn't leave his house. He isn't violent. He just gets into this extreme depression and difficult to shake out of it.

I am that exact same way. I was diagnosed with depression by my family doctor after he talked to a theropist he suggested I go to, but now at college, the head of the counseling center feels I may have cyclothimia. or something like that. it is a more mild form of bi polar disorder where you do not get the extreme states of manic happiness, but still get depressed. I can go through a day fine, but when I get sad, I get SAD! I have told people that the best thing to do for me personally is to come talk to me, sometimes its just nice to know soneone cares, or even notices you are upset because I usually skew things in my head so I can tell myselr I am ignored when in those states. but, if they do ask you too leave, listen, if I don't want to vent, I just want to be alone. like you said, everyone is different, but maybe he feels the same way. I am a totally different person when I get upset, and conditions like that need to be considered before you judge someone


I have Aspbergers and bi polor disorder, and have not acted like that in 12 years. Sometimes a good behaviour modification is very useful. I really hate when people assume that all autistic people act out. With the right treatment, anyone can behave. There are many available treatments, that can work to modify the violent tendencies. I will get off my soapbox now.

Aspie here too, and I haven't acted like that since I was a youngin'.

You'd think if there was an underlying problem, there would have been many more signs before this.

I have severe anxiety to the point where I go into panic attacks. Sometimes in severe cases I will scream to let off steam, but I've never destroyed any object in the house. This kid sounds just downright undisciplined. How did he get away with all of these things anyhow? He should have been punished after the first thing he did.

Exactly 2! My 24 year old brother got back handed by my mom the other day because he called her a moron. My brother and I both were disciplined and we became stronger.

209- No one said anything about "beating" him, he's 17 first off and a good old fashion spanking would work just fine! I mean he kicked his father for fuck's sake! That's what's wrong with kids today, I got spanked many times and I'm not fucked up in the head from it!

#2 did... I got many a "ass whooping" when I was a child ... As did my brothers who have the most vile tempers, along with my self I'm 17 how ever my brothers being 14 and twelve do kick off like that mainly due to the anger related problems that they have with the exception to the kicking the father part if my brothers dad was to spank him my 14 year old brother would kick his ass but I don't think many children were abused as much as my brother and I were... Ofc there's some one worse off always is but with beatings come hard ass children with fucked up problems lol

I think I need to clarify something; spanning and beating a child are two different things. My mama always told us she was going to beat us but it was used as a figure of speech. Spanking IS NOT ABUSE! Leaving marks, making your child bleed or having them so terrified to make a mistake because of the wrath of a parent IS abuse. It doesn't always have to be physical abuse either; emotional and mental abuse is the most detrimental abuse a child can endure. Emotional and mental abuse is also the hardest abuse to prove happened. However, spanning and discipline is not abuse, it is teaching a child right from wrong.

HAs he got mental problems or something? Or bad past experiences with the dentist that traumatised him?
Maybe there is more to this FML. Or maybe he is an immature little twatbag.

Actually 87, I believe that most people not just men. Everyone loves something that makes and keeps them young. Also, I wouldn't say this makes him a "child at heart'. This makes him a brat who's parents apparently didn't give enough slaps when he was growing up. This wouldn't even be understandable if he had a fear just say "I'm scared", no need to break stuff!

  onlychildFTW  |  33

Even if there was some past trauma it doesn't mean physical violence is acceptable. There are other, more mature ways to deal with it. And if he had some kind of mental problem OP probably would know how to deal with it. I'll assume he is just an immature brat that needs a spanking and corner time and grounding.
