He's 6 years old (will be 7 in August). He has a very strong personality and a very fast temper. He's extremely smart, but lacking emotional maturity.
He got in trouble at school today. I haven't gotten the whole story yet, but he definitely had a major tantrum. When I told my friend/co-worker she asked what was wrong with these teachers that they can't handle him. I was really quick to tell her the teachers aren't the problem, he is. He needs to learn his place in the food chain and quit acting like an apex predator when he's just lower level prey. I don't want these teachers catering to him. He needs to learn how to function in a world that won't bend to his will.
His outbursts and unruly behaviour are better now than they were a few years ago, so he's getting it...slowly but surely. I'm confident he'll continue to get if I make sure he's held responsible for his behaviour. No excuses.
Do you have a difficult child?
