Dear Ms. Delgado,

You likely will not be able to do much about the trait of jealousy that your son displays. However, you can pay attention to how he treats people. If he displays jealousy, but is not mistreating anyone, you needn't intervene except to try to help him portray reality realistically. On the other hand, if his jealousy results in treating others badly, that is what the focus should be on, rather than the jealousy per se.
