Hello doctor,

A known 16-year-old son misbehaves with others, not staying at home, does not care about his family, passes the time with his bad company, behaving rudely to parents, and not studying properly. Parents have no control over him, and he does not care when they request him to focus on studies. He does not ask what we say. All these happen within two years of time when he joins with a new circle of friends. Last time he tried committing suicide, writing a statement against his parents as a reason for his death. After his suicide attempt, he is forcing his parents to give him expensive things. Nobody can speak even a single word against him, as it is right or wrong. Otherwise, he will take the next step to attempt suicide. He is not under the control of anybody. We think he needs treatment to stabilize his mind.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can certainly understand your concern. I have worked through your attached query in detail.

As per the description, the possibility of a conduct disorder or a borderline personality disorder should be considered here in your child.

In view of suicidal threatening, it is advisable to consider mood stabilizer drugs at the earliest.

Detailed mental status evaluation is required in a head to head interview with your child.

It is advisable to consider the expert guidance of a child psychiatrist.

An inpatient requirement is also high. I hope this helps.
