I have had my 8 year old nephew since he was 1 year old. He was a typical toddler with some issues as far as development. He did not start to walk until he was around 2 and said very few words until 2 and 1/2. He was very hard to potty train and still wets the bed now. He is currently in 3rd grade and not doing very well. He has had some severe behavioral issues since last year ie: fighting , bringing weapons to school , stealing ,ect. He refuses to take responsibility for his actions. He is constantly getting into things and lying about it. For instance , he cannot be trusted in the bathroom, he will get into everything (shampoo,soap ,ect) . He is always writing on walls , bedding and himself.
Even when caught , he will tell you with a straight face that he did not do anything!
Do you have a particular question to address? This little boy is showing signs of emotional disturbance and should be evaluated by a child psychiatrist or clinical psychologist (or other pediatric mental health professional).
