Isaiah is an angry punk rocker who smokes, drinks and has an obsession with fire.
Isaiah is verbally abusive towards his mother and blames her for his parents' divorce.
He's defiant and bitter, and is constantly getting into fist fights at school, especially with the 'jocks.'
Isaiah's mother sent him to SageWalk to learn how to deal with his anger issues.
For him, I dont think that he's the one that needs the help, it's the "jocks" that need it the most. It happens in my school too, the jocks think they're better than everyone and they start trouble with everyone too. About the smoking, drinking, and obsessing with fire, sounds like a normal teenager to me :shrug
No, it's his fault. He can choose who he wants to associate and fight with. If the jocks were going out of their way to start trouble, the best path for him would have been to just ignore them or go tell the nearest teacher, NOT to fight them.

I really cannot have seen that situation turning out much different than it did. Kids who don't have deeper internal problems don't take guns and bombs to school. The Columbine shooters were obviously deeply affected and poorly supervised. Everyone gets picked on. Not everyone "fights back" or takes arms to school and shoots down innocents.

The counselor was right, how is it even FEASIBLE to get into a fight every single day unless you're provoking them!?
I'd personally like to know what the hell being a "punk rocker" has to do with anything. Do the rest of the family listen to nothing but easy-listening? Did the mom suddenly come into his room and catch him listening to Rancid or Dropkick Murphys or Sex Pistols or The Clash? "OHMYGOD those horrible satanic lyrics! Aaaaahhh!" I watched this last night for the first time and when he appeared on-screen with the words "Angry Punk" under his name I almost snorted milk out my nose.
Isaiah's Mom (on phone): You gotta help me! I just caught my son listening to Dead Kennedys!
Sage-whatever-that-place-is-called counselor: Don't panic ma'am, when we get through with him, he'll only want to buy Yanni and John Denver CDs.
Mom: Oh, thank ... thank God! *starts sobbing*
:hahaup That's great MysticalChicken, & so true!
:yay Too hilarious. This is almost dead on for the conversations my mother had with church leaders, etc. when I was a teenager. Just replace the DKs with something like The Sisters of Mercy.

Yes - he may be exacerbating it with his in-your-face attitude, but that doesn't necessarily mean he is picking the fights.
I forgot to say that I listen to punk music (along with alternative and new-wave) and I'm perfectly normal-looking. I don't start fights, my hair is my normal color (although I'd like to dye it black), I have no piercings, except for my ears, and I don't even wear earrings since they make my ears itch. No tattoos either.
