6 Year Old Throwing Temper Tantrums

I feel like a hostage to my 6 year old boy. He has had ongoing behavior problems. Recently, I lost my job and have been around him a lot more. He goes to the boys and girls club for 5 hours a day and otherwise he's with me. He screams in the morning. He screams at night. He throws things. He hits. He runs outside screaming. He throws a tantrum because he isn't getting the food he wants. He's throwing a tantrum because he can't eat whenever he wants. He throws a tantrum because he's being punished for throwing a tantrum. I can't...

Adult Church Service for 6 Year Old

Our church is going to limit nursery care to children 5 and under during adult church service. I am concerned that some of the topics that are brought up in the adult sermon would be disturbing to my 6 year old son. At what age is a child mature enough to handle adult sermons?

Questions on Dating

I worry about the perception of the man I'm dating being a "surrogate father", since the one my child has in non-existent. As far as I'm concerned, I'm Mom and I'm Dad... Are these feelings justified? Am I reading too much into a situtaion that is so far drama free?

I Have Had It with My 5 Year Old!!

If you guys read my post regarding my defiant 5 year old, then you know all about the tip of the iceberg. The straw that broke the camels back: she just intentionally stepped on a brand new picture frame. (why was it on the floor? it was in the corner, blocked off by the couches, in a 'safe spot' -or so I thought- so it wouldn't get knocked over or broken before I could hang it. NO ONE has ANY business even being in that corner. It was under an end table for crying out loud). I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THIS BEHAVIOR IS COMING FROM. I...
