My 6-year old son loses his temper VERY easily, especially when his sister is involved. He throws things and slams doors. I usually end up straightening the situation by giving him a time out, but I want to know WHY he does it, and how I can prevent this from happening AGAIN and AGAIN. I understand he is a little jealous of his little sister because people are always telling her how cute she is, and how well she talks, etc. But I try my best to praise him as well, but it never seems to be enough. Also when I am talking sternly to him while he does something bad, on occassion, he mimmicks me (you know, with his tongue out and shaking his head). This has to STOP. I feel like I'm losing control over him.
