URGENT HELP REQUIRED

hi im really worried about my step son, we havent seen him since he was 4 and now he wanted to come back and see us hes now 9, his mother said since we last saw him he has these flicks. 1 minuit hes loving the next his eyes darken and he smashes the house up says really upsetting insulting abuse, tries stranglin you beats his other siblings up headbutts you throws hammers at you and then after 3 hours he calms down and says the man tells him to do it? what do i do im really worried as i also have a 5year old son in the house and also there is mental health in the family. a doctor said it could be adhd or ocd i think there is more to it so weve descided to pull together to sort this out??

i would get an Evaluation. Adhd and bipolar seem to be similar in children. it also depends on his environment when he was not with you.

Maybe the mother should stay when he comes to visit. Another idea is that you have your son stay with someone else (grandparent visit?) when he first starts visiting so you don't have to be concerned about his safety.
