Almost 5 Year Old Having Temper Tantrums

I have seen some good responses to others on this site, so I thought I’d give it a try. I’m at a loss as to what to do with our daughter. She is a very smart and generally happy little girl who is just about to turn 5. She is currently causing quite a stir in our home with her temper tantrums. She seems to be extreme, one minute very sweet, happy, and engaging, the next minute on the floor screaming, whining, talking back, kicking, and swinging whatever she can. This weekend it pretty much ruined both our days as a family. Is this...

How Do You Teach a 6 Year Old Not to Steal?

We've been having issues recently with our 6 year old son taking things that don't belong to him. If he sees it & wants it, he takes it. From school, a friend, the store, where ever. He knows it's wrong bc he tries to sneak it past me or his teachers. If he's lucky enough to get it outside the store, for instance, I make him take it back inside & tell the manager or worker that he took it w/o paying for it.
