Increase Frustration Tolerance?
Hi! I am concerned about my 12 year old son.  He has a low frustration tolerance, and I am not sure how to help him.  He was slightly behind academically but now he is doing great. He is very kindhearted but if someone laughs at him or says something bad about him, he gets all upset.  He is good at video games (therefore happy when playing them) but he has never been good at sports, mostly because he is always in a hurry and hates losing.  We've tried everything:  soccer, basketball, bowling, etc.  He does seem to be maturing (so maybe he will grow out of it?)  but sometimes I worry that when he grows up he will be a "quitter" or a "hothead"  How do you teach them patience and tolerance?????

Counsellers can really help a child to deal with there anger and fustration. Thay have different techniques to follow when you son is experiencing these feelings. Such as screaming into a pillow when feleing fustrated. Maybe this will help. You probably want to fix this now or you are right he probably will grow up to be a hothead. He needs to learn patience. Best wishes.
