I'm sure there are books on this but if anyone can share the cliff's notes I'd appreciate it.
He's 6.5. He's a late summer birthday and we held him back so he's in kindergarten and doing awesome both academically and socially. This is only an at home thing and usually only at the end of the day so it's likely exacerbated by being tired and hungry but still.....
When he's writing words and drawing pictures at home he will often become frustrated and crumple up the paper throwing it in the recycle and saying things like:
"I'm not talented at ANYTHING" or "I hate this picture, I can't draw" etc etc etc.
Where is all this self loathing coming from? yikes!!!! That's a lot of self esteem issue for such a young guy!
He ends up quite dialed up, frustrated and crying. He's not really in a good place to listen to me helping him calm down or problem solve once he's headed down this path.
Advice? Feedback? Experiences?
