I feel like a failure as a mother. my son is six and ever since he started school he has struggled with hands on. he is now in grade 2 and it hasn't changed. his father and I separated a year ago and it seems to be the same if not worse. He gets angry and then he reacts by throwing something, screaming and hitting someone. an example, he went to a birthday party and they all got pucks. the party went great until the end when all the kids were hitting their pucks with their sticks. I didn't see what happened but when I talked to my child to see what happened because the other boy was crying. he said the boy took his puck and wouldn't give it back. my son then hit him with his hockey stick. I was contemplating if I bring him to the birthday party in case something like this happened. and now I am full of emotions. I have had people tell me I'm not discipling him if he is like this but I feel I am. When my child gets mad he will throw something, yell or react with hands on. Is this who he is or will this ever change??? or is anger a genetic??
