hello, this is my first post. My child has very difficult behavior and although I have not brought evaluate, I would love to. He said to me yesterday “mommy you are always mean to me”. He is almost 5 and yesterday he went up to two children on a trampoline and started fighting them. It sounded like they were being mean to the other children in the trampoline and my son took it upon himself at almost 5 years old to lunch, kick, sit on, and tease the two children who were being mean to the girls and boys on the trampoline. I raised my voice to break it up and the other children stopped. Mine did not. He kept initiating the fight. I am besides myself with examples of my son not listening, not following simple commands, and being socially rude about disliking birthday parties and saying it in front of the family to not wanting to play engaged with friends. Just parallel play. I need new tools please.

Hi, I am sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time with your son. It must be really frustrating and draining having to manage his challenging behaviour. I can see that you really want to help him stop this and express himself in a more positive way. I am wondering if it would help to do some mini role play work with him to show him examples of positive behaviour? Maybe a trip to the local library to get some books to reiterate positive behaviour. You might also find it helpful to read our advice on challenging behaviour, although it is for early years, I feel some of the strategies would be helpful. Please click here to read this.
