Please advise, I am a single parent with a 14 year old. He is verbally abusive and becoming violent. His father is of no help. Sometimes the neighbors hear him screaming at me and I have always been a quiet and respectful neighbor for the 20 years I have been in my building. I am humiliated to see people in the hall. Sometimes I am so nervous that I go downstairs and wait out his fits in a nearby park. I have tried some therapy for him, but it is not enough. What do I do if things get really out of control one day? I don’t know where to turn, or how to handle this.
