Daycare Mom - trouble with son with the other kids

I opened a daycare in September and am about ready to quit. My son is the problem. When he is not in school, he is kinda mean to the other kids (he's 8 and knows better but has a temper sometimes). Sometimes he's good as gold and sometimes (like yesterday) was mean to 2 little girls that were here. We were in the playroom and he was jealous of the kids playing with his old toys that he doesn't even know exist (until now). He took them away from the other little girls and I had to send him in the other room to be with his dad. He sometimes yells at them (telling them to shut up) and the one mom said her little girl took it home with her and was telling her mom to "shut up". I know this is minor but it reflects bad on me. He lost computer, TV and game privileges for about 1 1/2 months but it doesn't slow him down sometimes. I'm not quite sure what to do at this point and about ready to get my old office job back (they offered it back but it's about 1/2 hour away and I'm saving a ton of money staying home with gas and latch key for my son). I am finally starting to get some business and like staying home but I am pulling my hair out some days. Does anyone have any advise? He won't go to his room, I can ground him from his privileges again but I've been over this with him it seems like a thousand times. He wants me to keep the daycare going, he loves kids but there are times I just want to quit! Can someone please help, I love advise?

I have a son who is about the same age. I usually end up sending him to play by himself in his room. I tell him if he cant be nice to the younger children then he cant play with them.
