I have a friend that is having troubles with her 6 year old son, she is asking advice from me because I am in my first year of psychology, but I am reluctant to give her any advice because I feel as if I am not ready for that.
I have first observation ideas, but would like advice from an individual with more background. Her son acts out in class aggressively, a lot of yelling, and verbal taunts; recently he submitted drawings in class of people dying, and of people shooting others.
In the past I told her his outbursts of aggression and verbal taunts were a learned behavior, due to the fact that that is what he sees in his household amid his mother and father. However, I told her that is just my first observation. Now she comes to me because of the photos. Her husband and her are recently divorced, and parted in anger.
