My cousin is in his senior year in high school, and his younger brother in 9th grade is out of control. His brother has attacked him and threatened to kill him in his sleep. A few weeks ago, this younger brother's girl friend broke up with him, and he went beserk and hit himself in the head and started bleeding and went to the emergency room. Today, I was told that the younger brother had his phone taken away from him from his parents as punishment, and he ended up arguing and attacking his older brother. His older brother now has knots in his head from getting hit, and went to a friends house. The advice I need is- their parents are looking for a solution to get him under control. He has major anger issues and I fear for the whole family. I heard of boarding school, but really have no clue about them. Furthermore, I'm not sure if he needs psychological counseling, or if that will only make things worse. Has anyone been in this situation before? Or dealt with boarding school? What other options do the parents have?
