hi everyone i have a 6 year old boy who is very full on and he seems to be having trouble controlling his emotions and temper lately!!! when he gets punished and sent to his room he kicks big holes in his bedroom walls and has smashed his bedroom window! he just seems to be so angry all the time and i dont know why but i also think he doesnt know why either. he has trouble making friends because he bullys them all the time and he just acts like he is a 16 yr old not 6 yr old!!! ive tried doing everything the parenting programs tell you to do plus ive also tried all different types of punishments and behaviour charts and everything but he just doesnt seem to care and he always always does it again... can anyone make some suggestions on things i can try to hopefully get control of him??? im in desperate need as i have 2 younger children as well and they are missing out on my time as i spend so much time on controlling the eldest!!!

My 7 year old has had so many behavior problems that it has affected him in school. He is not doing group day therapy in a mental institution. It is helping him. I am not saying that it will go that far without meds. I am just saying explore all your options. Research different medicines and you make suggestions to your doctor. My son is on a patch for ADHD. He also has been but on medicine for anger. I am not a mother who wants to medicate her son at all. I look into everything and do what is best for him. If you were sick or needed help wouldn't you want someone you trust to reasearch and give you something that will help.

Medication is not for everyone. If just works for us. I started a myspace for my son. I do not know everything but you are more than welcome to visit and take anything useful from there or any of his friends.

ive been thinking about that but as you said im not sure about him being medicated cause he is already on medication daily for his asthma so im not liking the idea of medicating him more but i suppose if he needs it then i dont have a problem with it... thanks heaps for your advice i was already thinking of doing that but you just confirmed that i should so thank you

I know exactly where you are coming from i also have a out of control 6yr old who doesn't realise how bad he gets when he is one of his moods I recently took him to a peadiatrician who deals with children with behavioural problems and explained I didn't want to be one of those mum's whose medicate but when we started talking about some of the things my son was doing the dr explained that there was a chemical inbalancement in his brain to do with his emotions such as his serotonine and adreneline which controls behaviour so maybe you could try and find a dr who deals with behaviour problems in children and see if you can get some answers
