    that the boy is the one who needs to grow and change, not the general public. Also, he is getting away with this because he is young, and it's
    Hawaii. An adult in my state would not be treated the same way, would likely be arrested and put on a sex offenders' registry. That is something to worry about.

    I understand your concern about the diarist, but would rather a person express their worries to the correct authorities, than to ignore what could be a dangerous situation.

    I must say, you seem very functional, considering your ailments. My brother was schizophrenic also, but he was one of those who steadily deteriorated until the end of his life, after decades of turmoil including police encounters.

    Like you, he resented anyone "all up in his business" but unfortunately, for him that meant he ate spoiled food, soiled his clothes, and destroyed much of what he had, including his physical health and his home.

      and I live with my parents, which helps at the moment.  I wasn't doing so well on my own the last couple years.  I have a fairly mild form of schizophrenia and that helps - and I respond very well to the medication.

      Yes, the child has to adapt, but clearly in this case he is adapting slowly, lives in a warm environment and the police, CPS and the parents are monitoring the situation - additional monitoring by random people is not needed.  He's also a child, and doesn't live in your state - so worrying about his potential issues as an adult is frankly jumping the gun.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
