My five year old son is very stubborn and misbehaved at home and in public places. He has not had to many bad reports from school until the last few weeks. To discipline him I put him in timeouts in his room for five minutes up to an hour depending on what he has done. Just the other day he told me if you don't like me why don't you just kill me. I explained to him that I love him and like him I just don't like his behavior. Then I brought it up again before bedtime and said that it hurt me that he would say Somthing like that and he just said it again. When he says it he has no emotion he isn't acting sad or angry it like he just asked me to tie his shoe or something. I was thinking about taking him to a psychologist what do u think. It's a little beyond normal 5 year old tantrums!Answer Question

Talk to your son's pediatrician. He/she will guide you to a therapist if your son needs one. Wish you the best.
