My son is 6 and he loves video games. I encourage video games to a point because I believe they teach valuable skills; hand eye coordination, problem solving, creative thinking, etc...The problem is that he gets extremely mad when he can't do something he tries to do. He screams at the top of his lungs and throws the worst temper tantrums. I have tried helping him at various parts of the game (and it doesn't matter if the games are rated E or T-hes allowed some t's and no m's.) He's very smart but extremely impatient (normal for a 6 yr old I know). I make him take breaks but the fits continue. Anyone have any better ideas in handling this behavior?
