What you’re currently doing isn’t working, so it’s time to change things up. Therapy is a must, and it sounds like you’re already doing that. Make sure to chat with the therapist about the severity of the behavior.

I’m not a therapist, but I do see a pattern of this type of behavior when kids don’t know how to communicate their feelings and/or feel misunderstood (like no one is really listening to them). I highly recommend Ross Greene’s book, “The Explosive Child” — it can change your lives.
