Is it just my 7 year old?!

DS seems to get into a temper over the slightest thing. Ask him to do a job, he stomps around, saying 'no'. He will eventually do it, but after a lot of shouting and arguing.
Bedtime, he refuses to stay upstairs by himself, which we are trying to tackle at the moment. Last night was horrible, crying, screaming, and throwing things around.
His temper and stubbornness is so hard to deal with. He has consequences, such as no TV etc when he acts out, hut I honestly feel I'm fighting a losing battle at the moment...

@kierenthecommunity I'm so pleased to hear it! I get to a point where he is refusing, and then think.. Now what?!

And that is why I have been in bed by 8 every night this week!
Snuggled up with a book, but still in bed
At least dd stayed in her bed too.

Mine too! Life is apparently completely unfair if you’re seven.
