“This video attempts to answer the question: What are the signs that a child could become a psychopath? or What are the signs that a child has already become a psychopath? I’ve also received this question with the term antisocial personality disorder. In the mental health community, we don’t like to label children as psychopathic. I titled this video 11 signs that a child is at risk for psychopathy because that’s what I’m really talking about here because we’re not going to label children as psychopaths. We are really talking about the risk for future psychopathy.

1. bedwetting
2. arson, fascination with fire, destroying property
3. hurting small animals, practicing on stuffed animals,
4. cheating friends, enemies, and those who are neutral
5. ignoring another child who is crying, failing to recognize distress in faces
6. attacking a teacher, being dominant with authority figure, attacking anyone with a weapon
7. committing a crime alone, fantasizing about a crime
8. desire to see disturbing images or scenes, want to see a person die
9. fearless, not worried about consequences, resuming bad behavior right after punishment
10. bullying, wanting people to fear them
11. cold parenting and negative reactions to disclosure, neglect, highly critical parenting

Happy Juneteenth 2021!…

“On June 19, Americans will celebrate Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating the day news of the Emancipation Proclamation reached Texas, with block parties, cookouts and educational events.

While Juneteenth celebrates the Emancipation Proclamation, which only freed slaves in the South, the 13th Amendment is what officially ended slavery in the U.S.

On June 19, 1865, Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger informed a reluctant community in Galveston, Texas, that President Abraham Lincoln had freed enslaved people in rebel states two and a half years earlier. He pressed locals to comply with the directive.

Although Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation became effective Jan. 1, 1863, people who owned slaves were responsible for telling them that they were free, and some ignored the order until Union troops arrived to enforce it, according to Cliff Robinson, founder of Juneteenth.com. Texas was the last Confederate state to have the proclamation announced.”
