Tell his therapist I said "Say hi to the 1960's" for me!
Seriously, tell the boy. He has the right to the truth, no matter how hard.
Good luck <3
Pretty much sums up what I have been trying to say. It's quite possible that he already knows. Or he knows "something" is wrong. If you can't talk to him about it, there's no way he's going to come to you to talk about it. You are lying to your son. If you really fear there are mental health issues at play and truly believe you shouldn't tell him, I think you should get a second opinion. Bad news doesn't get better with time.

I know a girl in a similar situation. She's constantly trying to find something similar between her and her "dad's" family. They couldn't be more opposite looking in every way. She knows something is up, but has no idea of what the truth really is. It's super sad because everyone knows but her.
