I guess have a small adult in my house! Have I given him to much leeway?

This past weekend, my 6 year old had 2 friends spend the night, I was very impressed with how well behaved they were, but I noticed that when they played together, my son was "the boss" not rude or anything, but very controlling of any situation, they were wrestling around and both he and another kid bumped their heads, the boy cried and cried, and put him on my lap, my son say it hurt, but suck it up you big baby! Now, I only have 1 kiddo, and he is mature for his age, his dad and I never really baby-talked with him, he is great with his pets, but I was kind amazed/embarrassed at what little bossy kind of not compassionate little boy he acted like!

  • He's learning that behavior somewhere. I'd investigate
