Don’t let 6-year-old boy be man of the house

From elsewhere in The Post: A child’s fussy behavior and negative demeanor has his mom perplexed.

“I think that my son may act up because he and I have different temperaments, a problem that can’t be fixed. But if he acts up because he’s bored, I don’t know what more we can do. Our whole lives are structured around our son,” she says in a letter to Family Almanac columnist Marguerite Kelly.

Kelly suggests giving her son less attention to remind him he’s not in charge of their household. Read Kelly’s full response here, and join her tomorrow at noon for a live discussion.
