My 8 year old doesn't understand the idea of a treat. He will want more or argue for something else, every time. We realized this need for control so for example, will give him a choice of 3 options for tea, he will want the forth, not on offer. He recently missed out on a trip to the movies cause he lost his temper arguing about what and how much he could have to eat and drink there. So his younger brothers didn't miss out we said ok you can still go but becasue of this behaviour no treats there, more yelling, no movies for him, (his brothers went without him) talk about cutting your nose off to spite your face. His younger brother gets the idea of treats, why doesn't he??? Any ideas how to cope with this?
