I have an issue with my son...it getting kind of out of hand. He is 9 and is a very emotional child. When the world isn't going his way (which is most if the time) he either gets very angry, which results in physical and verbal aggression to who ever is in the line of fire or he breaks into uncontrollable crying. I have noticed that he isn't a very good communicator. So to try to resolve that issue, I often find myself saying things like it looks like you are angry or sad or confused, how can I help you fix that. When he becomes aggressive, I immediately tell him that it is unacceptable and ask him to go to his room until he can control himself physically and verbally. I have asked his doc and she sent him to a behavioral theripist that has him on a reward and cnsequence system. We have been doing this for about 6 month and I see very little change. Is there something else I can do? Is this normal? If he is having these issues now, what is going to happen when he becomes a teenager with hormones, attitude and want of independance? Suggestions?
