How does an 8 year old boy develop an anger problem? What makes him lose his temper so quickly at school, when he does not do that at home? Why does my child feel the need to cry over everything when he doesn't get his way. What would make a child not be able to control his emotions? These are the questions that I am throwing out there because I am completely stumped on this behavior that mainly only happens at school. We do not allow this type of behavior at home. Do do not accept the crying & baby-ness; he does not lose his temper at home with us because he knows that we don't allow it. He knows what respect is; he knows his manners, he knows right from wrong. So I am left to ask, what is causing this type of behavior at school?
Any type of insight is helpful. All questions are welcome to help understand. Thanks!
