My friend told me he sometimes goes out to a field and beats himself in the legs and abdomen. He said that he does it because he needs to be punished and also because it gets out a lot of his anger. The other day we were playing a video game and he was getting really mad so he went into his closet and pulled out a long cardboard box and beat it against the wall for about 10 seconds. He said that he kept it because he used it for that type of thing. It was half laughing and half anger. I am a genius, and I think he is about 10 pegs above me, so I just have a hard time giving him advice because he is so smart. I think mostly he is alone, and I feel like I cant help him because I cant relate to his intelligence as much. Any advice?
