Hi- I have a ds who is 8 1/2. For a number of yrs we've had trouble with him in terms of tantrums the second he doesn't get what he wants, being very defiant, and basically not listening to us if it does not suit him. When he was young everyone said he would outgrow it but at this age, I doubt it and his behavior is affecting the whole family. He is a very smart boy and actually only gives his dad and I trouble for the most part. He does fine at school and camp and fine on sports teams where dh is not the coach. If dh coaches, ds will give him trouble if he doesn't get the playing time he wants, position that he wants, the call doesn't go his way, etc... THis past yr. we had a parent say her son won't play on my team because she doesn't want him exposed to my ds behavior.
We almost don't like to go anywhere with him or have people over because we never know when this embarresing behavior
