I need help with my DS (turning 4 in few weeks) behaviour.
He is a very confident, talkative and outgoing little boy but he does have a temper on him.
He plays very rough, at home and previously at daycare. He has just started pre-school (15 hours per week) and after his first week I was informed he had lashed out at other kids. Sometimes over a toy being taken, other times unprovoked.
I am genuinely concerned as I don't know how to discipline this behaviour when it happens at pre-school. At home we do use the thinking corner but I don't think it works. He screams, kicks and hits if we take him to the corner but then will stay there and apologise afterwards. But continue to do the undesired behaviour.
He gets easily frustrated when playing with toys and especially when something doesn't go his way.
I am worried he will be labelled "that kid" at school, when deep down I know he is a good kid.
I also have 5 month old twins and we've recently moved interstate so there has been a lot of upheaval, however these behaviours were occurring beforehand too.
I'm at the point where I don't actually enjoy playing with him or spending time with him. But I also get embarrassed when I collect him from pre-school as I'm so worried about what he's done during the day.
Any advice or strategies?
