8 year old needs the ticket to self control


My red-headed 8-year-old has a severe temper. He is the third out of six children and we are homeschooling the other five. He will spend a week at my mother's house for a week and he seems calm there, but when he gets back, the anger and outbursts resume after 24 hours. His outbursts include beating up on siblings, throwing whatever he can find, damaging the house, screaming, threatening, etc. We have prayed with him, read the Bible with him, taken things away, conducted cleaning chores, etc, but this never happens at my mom's house. If she says to jump, he would instantly ask how high, how far, etc. He is calm everywhere else, except here. My husband and I would seem to be anywhere else but at home. I don't know what to do anymore.
