My five year old is in kindergarten, and is having trouble focusing on his school work, at home he is fighting me on doing his homework, which the teacher has sent home because he is not doing it in class. He is very slow at getting ready to go, and taking off his outdoor clothes when he comes in. He argues, screams, cries, about everything. Don't get me wrong there are good days, today is just one of the really bad ones. But he is throwing tantrums about what is for dinner, about doing homework, about getting up in the morning, about getting ready to go, about carrying his own back pack, about going to bed, about everything. Is this a phase? really?. What can I do to put an end to this? Has anyone else had this problem, a five year old who doesn't want to do what he is supposed to and will fight to the end?
