My son is eight, and over the last several months he has developed an angry response to everything. We can be practicing flashcards and every answer he gives is full of anger.

I've tried spanking, I've tried sending him to his room to cool off. Nothing seems to be a good fix. It may work for a week but then the same patterns resurface. Is this just how things are going to be from now on???
