My son has had a hard time developing social skills that my wife and I feel are important for him now. And he needs them to have a successful future too, so we’re really worried about the long term consequences.
His personal confidence and self-esteem seem to be almost non-existent at this point. That is causing him to have emotional outbursts, cry, get angry, and shy away from people. Even though this behavior would be normal if it were occasional, it is happening way too much recently.
At his young age, I also feel that a long program that sent him away from us for several months would probably do more harm than good. Since he is already have a hard time emotionally, it might push him into even more worrisome problems to be away from his parents for so long.
I know that a lot of people will probably read this and think that we are terrible parents, but we are honestly doing our best to help our son. We realize that we are not very strict people and being disciplinarians just does not fit with our personalities. Even so, our son has not turned out to be rebellious or disrespectful. But we are worried about some of his irrational, emotionally uncontrolled behavior.
Have any other parents had these issues with their young children? Were you able to find boot camp style programs for them? Can you give us any recommendations about how to help our son?
