    My six year old boy, Josiah is crying when he or someone he cares about loses a game. If he wants someone to win a video game and they lose, he cries and gets mad at the other person playing claiming they cheated. He is obessive about having all the green rings in the pool – he screams and cries if he can’t have them and it seems unfair to let him have his way when he needs to share with others ?? He gets angry very easily and there should be no reason for him to act like that. Anger is rarely displayed in the home – there are no problems between us as parents etc. help please I have your book but haven’t finished reading it yet. Thank you

      Melissa,
      Anger is the doorway into a man’s heart if you know how to walk through that door. I assume you have my, Does Your Child Really Have ADHD? book. You need to memorize the John Gray Love letter and walk your child through it. If you haven’t seen me do that when you get to that part of the book reply to this post and I will walk you through it.

        Thank you – I will try those things. He is the middle of three boys and the littlest one (4) provokes him to anger all the time – I do my best to stay on top of it – but its hard to be referee all the time. Im also not sure when they just need to work it out amongst themselves. Thank you for your prompt reply.

    Melissa,
    Between siblings teach them the fair fight. It is also in Does Your Child Really Have ADHD? This will make you a better referee and your boys will cool off a lot faster.
