    Can't take his own medication... for what? Who lets their kids take their meds on their own?

    If no diagnosed mental issues, then clearly.

    My son has been getting up in the morning, dressing himself (we've have talks about matching, it has helped. ;-), brushing his teeth and making his own bowl of cereal... before we even wake up sometimes. He is 6 years old... and has been doing this for a few YEARS.

    Bad parenting. Period.

    Something is definitely amiss, but I without knowing the situation, I cannot say. It sounds like he has some sort of mental impairment or disability.

    I don't know. He probably has some sort of mental problem.
