Hi
I wonder if someone can give me some advice, My nearly 6 year old boy is the sandwich of the family and has always been very difficult, He gets on with adults but with other kids he struggles as he is very bossy and enjoys to be by himself, he is a bit feminine some times his older brother plays football he is not interested in any football we have been pushing him to do it because it is easier for us but he is more artistic he loves drawing, I'm always worried about his temper he is very sweet but needs a lot of attention he doesn't want to share me or my husband with anyone, I'm not sure if he likes more girl stuff but he doesn't want to tell us because he thinks we would tell him off any advice is greatly appreciated
Thank you!

What do you mean when you say he is a bit feminine? Is it because he likes art intead of football? Many boys don't like football and many boys like art. What are 'girl things' in your eyes?

I think you need to accept him for who he is. If he doesn't like football you can't force him to like it just because it makes things more convenient for you. Why don't you sign him up for an art class while his brother is at football?

Sorry, that's very true I didn't ask any questions, basically I would like to know if someone has/had a similar situation, my boy gets angry very easy and therefore he finds difficult developing friendship with his peers. He is very sweet and also if someone does anything to him even by accident he will respond with the same push/kick etc.

Thank you for replying!
