    On a serious note last week I was reading up about people who have a combinations of psychological issues and psychiatric issues. Often the psychiatric issues are mistaken for extended psychological issues.

    If a child is involved, it's best to find an expert who will give an unbiases opinion rather than looking for an expert who will give a comforting but untrue opinion. Too many parents a looking for answers that suit their own thoughts.

    We now believe he is whats known as PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance) . You can't give a direct request to him without him melting down (Bit like Mordac really). So knowing that, Im going to gear him up for a life as an IT Support person, where you can ask them to do something and they just sneer at you.
    Your 'request' was somewhat 'unusual'...
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    That was compassion. It was a nice thing to say, whether true for everyone or not. Possibly a little hyperbolic in my case.
