Customer Question
My grandson has moved in...
My grandson has moved in with me because his mother put him out. I am 73 years old .
He doesn't get along with his dad. I don't know what to do? He will not open up to me
I know he does have anger problems. When you try and give advise he doesn't want to
hear what I have to say. I ask him if he is depress. Because all he does is look at tv
all day..He is in the 12 grade and he does do to school everyday..He has been in a couple of fightsl I suggested that he go to theraphy but he does not believe. His mother and dad
doesn't either. I suggest therapy long time ago but they did not get him help. I do not know what to do.

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am very sorry that you are having this difficulty with your grand-son, I can understand how distressing this can be for you. Unfortunately it is up to him if he wants to seek treatment or not as that is his right given his age, so if he is refusing treatment than you have to respect that. You can suggest that he take a natural supplement like St. Johns Wort as this may improve his mood if he does have depression or you can speak to the school have their school district counselor talk to him as he may be more receptive to a stranger than a family member.

I agree, this is why I wanted him to talk with someone else, thanks
Mental Health Professional: Dr. Z, Psychologist replied 2 years ago

You are most welcome. I truly hope he will change his mind, but it has to be his choice to seek treatment. Good luck and I wish both of you all the best.

No I do not want to talk live. I thought the price was $5.00 to confirm and $21.00 for a typed answer total $26.00. Is this right
Mental Health Professional: Dr. Z, Psychologist replied 2 years ago

The phone conversation I believe is an option, but you do not have to take it. 26 dollars is the total I believe, but experts do not have access to the financial dealings on this website. If you have questions you can contact customer service.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
