7 year old's negative attitude
Our 7 year old son is very negative. It breaks my heart and I find myself getting very frustrated with it (which makes me feel like a horrible parent). He comes home and talks about how everybody has done him wrong...claims nothing is his fault....wines and berates his 5 year old brother. He is a great student, teachers love him and he makes friends easily. I have a relative who lives blaming the world for her lack of good fortune and never takes ownership of her own life/destiny. I am terrified that my son is going to turn out with the same attitude. Any ideas? I try to encourage him to find something positive or good in every situation...he quickly rolls back to the negative. Help!
