My 6yo (7 next mo) ds can be so sweet & happy, but he definitely has a short fuse, & it's usually over small things. He screams & yells, has tears in his eyes & his face is red he's so mad. I've told him that if he ever screams @ me & disrespects me like that, he goes straight into time-out. Today, right b/4 lunch I'd taken the trash out so I asked him to please put a new bag in the can. "No! I don't want to!!"(Jumps in air, red-faced, teary. . .) I put him in time-out for yelling. Dd starts to do it for him. I told her no, as soon as he's out, he is to do it. I finish heating the soup on the stove, ask him a couple times to do it, he still screams no, he can't & doesn't know how. "I'll help you, but you have to come over & do it, & quit screaming @ me." The fit continues, so I give dd her lunch & let ds cool down some. He FINALLY calms down after about 20-30 min. Any suggestions, so I'm not just making him more angry??
