Our expert says:
It sounds as though the problem you are describing is really not about the boy, but about you, and your degree of temper and inappropriate anger. Why are you seeing yourself as the works foreman, giving him jobs to do, rather than just relaxing and being a mother ? See a personal shrink / counsellor first, to sort out your anger problems, and clarify what is fair ( and some of it surely is ) and what may be excessive expectations from the boy ? And with your shrink you can work out better ways of organizing simple discipline in the family, to help encourage the boy to behave well --- and especially to reward and encourage him when he DOES behave well. <br>And if your husband is a co-instigator in all this, maybe the pair of you should start by seeing a marriage counsellor with the same purpose
