Here is a scenario that is not uncommon:
Our 6 year old has been talking back to us and having a ‘lot’ of attitude. He simply refuses to do what he is asked and thinks it’s funny when we correct him. He takes things he isn’t supposed to take and doesn’t care about the consequences. He seems to be ‘unreachable’ in that nothing we say or do makes any difference to him.
We have tried reward charts and taking away his most prized possessions or TV time.
We have been to a kinesiologist to work on helping him see how his behavior makes everyone around him feel as well as trying to show him how his behavior is making him feel.
He is now behaving like this at school too and life has turned into a long stream of his crying, tantrums, throwing things, throwing himself on the floor and refusing to budge. Everything is a ‘mission’ and nothing seems to work.
What’s Up With That? What would you do?
