woolybear Posted January 20, 2011 Share Posted January 20, 2011 (edited) We're having some issues behaviour issues here. My younger ds is having problems with hitting/kicking. He is 8. I personally think it is too much. I know some of this is normal, but I would think by age 8 it should be less. It seems worse these days. There may be a bit of cabin fever making it worse, but that is no excuse. I feel like I have tried and tried. It now is to the point of upping the repercussion because my older is getting hurt. I think it MUST stop, but nothing seems to be getting through to my younger ds. So, I'm wondering two things. First of all, perhaps I need a little perspective. Like maybe this isn't SO unusual for an eight year old. Or is it? Second, I was wondering if some kind of character education program might address things like this. Also, how to resolve conflicts, listen with respect, obey mom, etc. So, if you answered yes to above, do you have any recommendations? I need to add we are not Christian. I don't mind that being an element, but if it is too heavily religious it won't work for us. Also, money is very tight, so it would need to be free or very cheap. Book recommendations from the library would be good as well. Any other thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
