My 5 year old is so hateful lately. He whines about everything, asking him to put on socks is too much for him! I've tried everything. I've taken toys away, we've had conversations, I've asked him if things are bothering him. We've read books on feelings and anger. I've tried the WWJD tactic and asked him how he feels if people talk to him this way. I've spent extra time with him. I'm at a loss. I think I've let him act like this for too long and now I dont' know how to make him stop. What are some discipline things I can try when he acts in a displeasing way. I try to pick my battles but this is just out of control. He has the sweetest heart but he just gets so mad and doesn't know how to handle it. How can I help him change this behavior?
