He is 6 now and still cries over everything. If his sister who is 3 tells him not to touch something he cries. If I tell him he can't have more milk only water he flips out. He was just chasing his sister all over the house screaming bloody murder because she had his magnifying glass...That he wasn't even playing with. I send him to his room where he screams like he is being killed and kicks the door and throws stuff. I try to stay calm but I get so angry at him. Surely he should be acting better than this at 6. I hate when I am out and he acts like this and everyone thinks I don't discipline but I do. I put him in timeout in his room, I take privileges... It just doesn't get better.

also, out of curiosity, is he on meds? My son was put on an anti depressant. It help some of this anxiety, but we later found it could cause mood swings. He had mood swings, but I thought it was part of the disorder. We took him off of it and while his now stims a lot, his mood swings are gone.
