My grandson is a wonderful 7yr old boy. He goes to mainstream school and is intellectually very smart. His main issue is overreacting and gets very emotional with crying fits when things don't go his way that could be anything. I appreciate anything you can suggest that has proven to work. My daughter in law is a wonderful mom and is very proactive with her child. I like to help in any way I can. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

You sound like a wonderful grandmother who wants the best for her grandson. I used to teach 7 year old children, and I would have talked to the parent right away about a plan of action. What does your daughter-in-law say about his overreacting and fits? I found this article about “Your Child’s Emotions” on the Focus on the Family website at http://bit.ly/2bGUrT5. This article might help get the ball rolling, but I hope your daughter will meet with the teacher to come up with a plan...if she hasn't already. Thinking of you!

When our girls were little, the oldest one had those melt downs episodes out of frustration. Like you, I wanted to understand and help her cope. I read the book 'The Birth Order Book' by Kevin Leman. I found it extremely helpful, lots of things made sense and we were better equipped to parent. The author is a former teacher, funny and a true expert in the topic. I know that you will find answers and solutions to help your grandson navigate life. Enjoy your 'grandmahood'.
