My 5 year old's tantrums
My 5 year old is in Kindergarten and loves everything about school. The problem begins the moment he gets in the car after school. All of a sudden his sweet voice changes into a horrible whine that never stops. He backtalks like crazy. He is rude and mean to his 3 year old sister. He throws a tantrum and cries/wails the minute he doesn't get his way. I have been feeling like a terrible Mom for not being able to see what caused this unwelcome change in him until his best friend's mother and I spoke today. Her son has been behaving EXACTLY the same.
Please, if anyone has any advice I would be soooo grateful! All our parenting and medical books don't tell us anything about this so we are counting on your experience.
Thanks so much,
