I am now a bit confused. John recommended a margin foe error for the 7year old having tantrums. I am giving my son no margin when it comes to hitting me. Today he hit me at 6:15am and was in his room until 8:00 when the school bus picked him up and went right back after school. He eats his meals in the kitchen and used the bathroom when needed but otherwise he is in his room. He is a wonderful little boy but since school started he can turn ugly in an instant.
