Hi

What is your question

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
My question is whether or not we should be concerned about my grandson's behavior at home
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
are you there
Expert:  DrThomasMD replied 5 months ago.

Yes.

But I don't think it is pathological.

I think it has to do with the family dynamic.

Since he is so good in school.

How this is approached is important.

I think the parents should approach a family therapist.

They should have a few sessions first, then invite the children in, as a family.

That is how such dynamics get resolved effectively.
