I have been having problems with my 34 year old son. Confusion, talking to himself, repetitive behavior which I outlined in 'introduce yourself'. He is thinking of going out tonight butn the last time he went out where we live (about 18 months ago) he punched a guy in the face, for what? we are not sure, said he had been talking about him. Do I get him to go somewhere else, he has already said if the same guy is around, he'll do it again. I know he needs help but I can't force him to do anything. He has been in the house, his room, for the last 2 weeks. I feel that if he does go out local I should tell him I will call the police if anything happens, would I make things worse? Maybe if I explained the consequences, he could be arrested and worse than that jailed. It has been like living with a time bomb, any advice?
