My 6 year old son was the same way and still is a little....I finally couldn't take it anymore and took him to a psychologist....he was diagnosed with bipolar, adhd, sensory disorder....since he has been on medication he has turned into a totally different kid, he is happy and not mad all the time. There is a lot of mental history in my family so I wasn't surprised that he was diagnosed with theses things....my 11 year old was also diagnosed with bipolar....oh, and I've tried love and logic, even took some classes and its a crock of shit unless you have normal kids.

I would take him in to a pediatrician, if it doesnt settle... it might be just just tantrums but it sounds like how my son was he was diagnosed with ADHD talk to your child alot a see if there is something bothering him or maybe he is struggling at school I would definetly make an appointment at least then you will know ifs it something serious or just a behaviour thing.. hope that helps take care

Go to loveandlogic.com if you already haven't. Their way of handling children is awesome.Give the children more control in their decisions, tell them the consequences, let them make their decision. It is harder for younger childre, but it can be done! I am still learning and it gets frustrating watching my son make wrong decisions, but there are life lessons in EVERYTHING! There is a "time out" kind of thing that Love and Logic suggests. Give him the choice of Stopping or Going to his room. If he chooses hs room, he can throw the "fit" in there, as long as it does not interfer with anyone elses time and enjoyment.

Been there done that...I have 6 kids and 4 grandchildren and none are the same...time outs help more than most realize...1 minute for each year they are and be sure to keep returning them to their time out spot (mine was in a corner with their nose to the wall) and when they are finished be sure to ask them if they knew why they were in time out, get and apology and and finish it off by telling them you them and let them know that time outs will continue if they don't stop...stay strong no technique work right away!!!



Good luck

MIne was like that. He is a little better now but I am evaluating him to find out where is coming from. He was dignosed with sensory issues and even though that was not all the problem the teraphy he received helped. His main thing was that he could not stand people invading his space...and it was pretty wide space. But he still is being evaluated. He is an excellent student but his anger is an issue at school. He started K this year. Children can be spoil, but a behavior like that has nothing to do with it. Maybe you should look into it. At least it will give you a piece of mind.

My daughter throws a fit when she doesn't get her way. You need to put your foot down and tell him, "I am the mom. When I say no it means no". And if he continues in his fits, start taking away privileges. Such as the television and playing outside. Start taking toys away. He will eventually see that you are not kidding. If it doesn't work, I would suggest you take him to a counselor maybe.
