I am a "mom" to a six year old boy (we will call him W). He is incredible! I have been with his dad (we'll call him K, and we're now engaged) for three years. His mom is not and has not been around since he was a baby. The majority of each of our days are fine. He had a great year in kindergarten, a year and a half before that in preschool, and does very well. Summer time is very trying though! Especially in the last few months, he has developed an attitude, seems to have permanently broken "listening ears", does not control his anger well, and is just pushing all buttons possible. We've tried being nice. We've tried being tough. We've tried the in between. Nothing seems to get through to him for more than an hour...
I don't know if I'm looking for advice. I don't know if I'm looking for other parents to tell me thus is normal or not. I don't know... So I suppose anything you want to say might be useful! :)
