I frequent second hand stores for household items, furnishings, etc. I don't know how many otherwise perfectly good pieces of bedroom furniture I've had to pass up due to them being permantly drawn on, carved into, or stickered on. I've never understood that. I know this isn't much help, but just wanted you to know I don't think your alone with this problem.

Shy. Doesn't play with friends. And lights things on fire inside the house.

I am not usually an alarmist. But if this were my child, I would run, not walk, to family therapy and find out if something funky is going on.
