I need help!!! My 5 yr. old son appears to have anger problems

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

I am a single working mom of a 5 yr. old boy. He is a very smart kid and is doing great in school academic wise; however, he has anger problems which I feel are getting worse. I do discipline him and nothing seems to work. He gets so angry at times that he hits, yells and back-talks, and will do things sometimes just to get a reaction. I admit that I have reacted to his outbursts and I'm working on that but sometimes it seems to go on forever. I just don't know what else to do! Please help!!

Hey Jodi,

I use mostly time-outs now. I have tried taking items (toys) away or going to bed early which tends to work as well. My biggest concern is helping him calm down when he is in a state of anger.
