We have a 6-year-old boy. He is generally lovely, bright, and easy to be around, but is often quick to anger when playing with friends and smaller kids (classic example is when he does not get his own way) resulting is shouting, screaming, hitting, and very occasionally biting. When he reaches this point it tends to happen very quickly (before he can catch it) and he upsets both himself and others.
We are concerned that this is limiting him socially and we are actively seeking a strategy to help him. We are at the point when we are ready to see a child psycholgist. Can anyone suggest, books, strategies or next steps here?
