Counseling with 8th grader (and single mom). He just found out he is "flunking" and will have to repeat a year. Surly, uncommunicative, angry. Hates school. So just trying to get him to "open up" a bit, asked him what he would REALLY like to do. His answer? His eyes brightened and he said, "I have a list of eight people I would like to kill." No joke. Deadly serious. His mom went ballistic and nothing more accomplished. Will have another opportunity to talk more to him (and mom) but 1) What would you say to boy? 2) What about the mom? 3) And what about the school - 3 of the 8 on the list were teachers - and with Columbine fresh in mind would you break confidentiality and let someone know? This is NOT fictitious or a quiz. This is real life in a little town.
