My son is 15. My husband and I divorced a year ago and since the separation my son has blamed everything wrong in his world on the divorce, more specifically on me (Husband left, I did not ask for or want divorce) Yesterday my son said to my mother "When y'all get back I'll have an AK47 & hit you right about here (pointing between the eyes) & since mom is taller, it'll hit her about here(pointing to throat) I find this very disturbing, although my son says he was "just kidding". My ex basicaly said "Well that's not cool ." It's not like he has a gun or access to one (not at my house anyway) but the level of lethality was alarming to me. Given his unbridled anger and hostility, am I just overreacting or could he be just kidding? If that truely is the case, it was not remotely funny. Would love some input please.

I would go to the police and report it and see if they will talk to him, also at school is a threat and they need to know. If he knows he scares you he will keep it up and your ex is a ass---- for not putting a stop to it and explain things to him. with a attitude like that he is going to end up in trouble.

No, I don't think you're overreacting. Most kids get emotionally and mentally disturbed by divorce. But they don't usually threaten to kill people. Acting out is one thing. Your son's behavior is way over the line.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

So you only thought of the problem when he threatened to kill you? You didn't think how much angry, hurt and insecure your son felt because of your divorce. He certainly needs counseling.

You could ask her to stop- She might be doing it because some stuff was in the joint-name and after divorce, those things tend to linger. Wanted or not they'll require you to use the name you were using when you started; some services are like that, not all, but some.
