We discussed with Richie his behavior before he went to the hospital. He stood outside our room with a baseball bat and wanted to kill us. Because I caught him cheating on his phone & internet restrictions. Renee is freaked out & I can't blame her. I actually thought about buying a gun to protect myself. I am going to buy a bar to go across the door tonight and install it this weekend.
He does seem to be doing better at school, I think he is working on getting caught up. His teachers were great, especially Mrs. Unzinger, she was genuinely concerned about him. Sadly, it's up to Richie now. I really don't know what else to do except to not give in.
