Question: Dear Luise: my son is 14 1/2 years old. He has been urinating in bottles, glasses, cups etc and leaving these around his room or under his mattress. He has also not been wiping his bottom properly and there are loads of chunks of faeces in his bed. When questioned he goes off on one and verbally and physically assaults me i am seperated and cannot cope any more help. A.
Answer: Dear A.: You need some serious intervention with your son. See a counselor as soon as you can. It could be a lot of different things, I have no idea but it is serious. Please seek help. Go to your minister or call a crisis hot line or talk to the people at school or all of the above. If he tries to hurt you again, go to a battered women’s shelter. Don’t try any longer to deal with it alone. That would be highly dangerous. Blessings. Luise
