In April this year, Hussain Tayyeb's (name changed) otherwise peaceful life suddenly came undone when his only son Mubarak (named withheld) started acting strangely. The first year senior college student, who used to be a well-behaved teen, would break into a fight with his parents at the drop of a hat and often lose his temper over petty issues. If this change wasn't disturbing enough, 17-year-old Mubarak's new set of friends with whom he spent most of his time, were also cause for concern. Had Tayyeb ignored his son's tantrums as the usual teen angst, he could have risked losing him.
