Hello cyber world! I hope all is well today. I would like to discuss the issues that I'm experiencing with my six year old son. He is a very loving and caring little boy when he is not playing video games or any type of game. When he is losing on anything, he can't seem to control his anger.
I have tried many different things to try to fix the problem, but none seems to work. I'd like to know if any of you have this problem with your children, and what you do to fix it. Well when my little one is losing on a game, he screams to the top of his lungs calling the game stupid, jumps up and down and has a temper tantrum, throws things, bangs on things, and sometimes even breaks things. He has been put on punishment, he has been spoken to several times, I have taken his favorite things away from him, and yes he has even been spanked for breaking brand new video games and tablets out of anger. Should I ban him from all of these things for good?
I'm really not sure what to do. His dad and I are at our wits end with that temper of his. We have even consider putting him in some kind of anger management class or taking him to counseling. Have anyone else taken their child to counseling, and if so, does it work? We love him so very much, and don't want him to grow up having fits of rage the way he does.
His dad and I are not sure why he is like that because I am very loving, quiet, and shy for I am a CANCER, and his dad is very outgoing, silly, and kind because he's a LIBRA. Our son was born April 2, 2009 making him an ARIES. I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but I have looked up Aries, and it said that they can be a little coo-coo. Someone please tell me this is not really true.
