We have been trying to do the stop and breathe method but he is starting pre-k this fall and I dont want him to have these issues there. He is use to other kids but he has an older brother and cousin who are very bossy to him and so of course he is to his friend who just turned 4. He also is alittle high strung and gets agrivated pretty easy and will yell. So any advise would be great! ThanksAnswer Question

I play the "FREEZE" game with my dd...When she gets upset I yell in a silly voice "freeze" (which she does because she thinks its funny) and that gives me the opportunity to talk to her about how she is feeling. It doesn't ALWAYS work but it might be something to try! GOOD LUCK!

I would get an evaluation from an Occupational Therapist. I would not assume that school will fix this. Our son is similarly "high strung" and quick to anger; after a couple of months his behavior at home improved to the extent he wasn't having daily tantrums, but his behavior at school continued to be a problem. We did find that magnesium suppliments took the edge off his most high strung behavior.
