Consequences Family With Abusive 11-Year-Old Might Face If They Don’t Get His Behavior Under Control
Anna and her adult children, Marcus and Makayla, say they live in fear of her 11-year-old son, Xavier. They say the boy verbally and physically abuses them, and they fear that he could seriously injure Anna’s 5-year-old daughter or Makayla’s 2-year-old and 9-month-old children. Anna says she fears that her only option is to reverse Xavier’s adoption and give him back.
