Hi Juliana,

Don’t worry about the long post, it’s so on point… with my 6 yo, hunger plays such an important role towards his behaviour, he often says to me to leave him alone, don’t want to see you… I should follow your advice and give him space but I don’t know when in public.
Also, as you said … feeling embarrassed triggers his emotional explosion , in your experience what is the next step besides giving him space to calm down by himself?
And why is he targeting only me and he is good with daddy? Sorry to ask so many questions, I would like to fix my relationship with him and not make things worse.
Thank you,xx
