Hi :)

First, I'd like to appreciate you for taking the first step and writing to us.
Its not easy to admit that there may be an issue with our child's behaviour.
You have shown a lot of courage by expressing this concern.

All moms have a tendency to think of their kids as babies, regardless of what age they are.
But your son is a young child of 7 years now.
Which means that he is at an age to start differentiating between right and wrong behaviour.

Now what we would have to do is identify what the problem behaviour is, and how we can replace it with appropriate behaviour.

Probably you could provide us with more information about his behaviour that is worrying you.
This would help us to guide you to help your son effectively.
Do write back to us. Probably we could continue this session over private messages.

Take care and be strong! :)
