My 6 year old son is getting me out of patience with his uncontrollable tears. He's been a crying type from birth but never new it will get to this stage. I discover in school when he is ask to do a thing like to read if he can't do it he immediately starts to Cheever and burst into tears. Doing his home work is the same thing. He burst into tears at every little thing he feels he cannot do. He plays a lot. He is always distracted with things arround him. Please I need advice on how to make him a better and strong person tomorrow. I have tried all I can. Thanks

Have you tried to put his emotions into words for him? It sounds like he is having a hard time processing his emotions. Next time he cries tell him "I can see this is upsetting you. But when you cry I can't understand you and can't help you. Can you calm down and tell me what is upsetting you then we can work through it together and try to fix it."
Maybe also remove him from the situation. So if he's sitting with you at the table doing homework, then take him to the living room and sit with him on the couch till he calms down.
On a side note: Why are you called 'abang patience'? Are you Malay by any chance??
