Well, I'm going to "blow my cover". I was on the list about a year
and got flamed pretty hard pretty often, so I unsubscribed. I recently
re-subscribed, but have been lurking for about 4 weeks now.
As for the below problem -- I may be all wet, but I think you're
treating this as a boy TRYING to be mean. It sounds like he's got a lot to
deal with just now, and probably will for quite a while. Just being there to
listen to him will be a great start. Get him to talk. Try using some of the
techniques form the JLT tape, if you can.
Your statement about his anger is probably accurate. Talking it out
will probably help a lot.
