I have an 8 year old son, 7 year old son & 5 year old daughter.
My oldest seems to get angry easily. And if the other two do or say something he doesn't like, he yells at them, & sometimes will shove or even hit them. Separating them works of course, so if I'm busy doing something I have him help me & give the others their little things to help with as well, but I can't always keep them separate, especially when we're out and about. I want & need him to learn it isn't ok to treat his siblings, or anyone, this way.
Of the three, he is the more reserved, less verbally expressive one. He is very creative artistically: LOVES to draw.
Has anyone had this issue? What advice would you give? Can I somehow use his interest in drawing as an outlet for him?
BTW, I'm the 3rd of 4 children, & in the middle of my brothers ;-P So I know sibling rivalry is expected. :-) My concern is his anger. A school teacher noticed it as well, before I began homeschooling.
Any advice is greatly appreciated ;-)
Thanks in advance.
