Julie and Paul call their 22-year-old son, Brandon, “their handsome, charismatic, devil-problem child,” and say they fear he could kill them in a fit of rage — a threat they claim he’s expressed daily since he was 10.
Brandon’s parents also say he’s been in and out of metal hospitals since he was 11 years old for behavioral issues, including, they say, hoarding lighters and starting fires and threatening to kill students and teachers at school. Julie and Paul say every way they have tried to get Brandon help has not worked, and they don’t know what to do anymore.
Brandon acknowledges he has problems with his temper, but says his parents make it worse by provoking him and being verbally abusive. Why does he say he resents his parents?
