Antidote Cooperation Friendliness Caring

Dear Dr. Borba,

The neighborhood kids were over yesterday, and my kid acted like the biggest jerk. I don't know a nicer way of putting it. He hoarded his CDs and video games, wanted things to go his way, never shared, and was so uncooperative that I wanted to send all the kids home right then and there. For the life of me, I don't know why they stayed. Any suggestions on how to help this kid be more cooperative would be greatly appreciated.

Bad Attitude Act Out

"But, Mommy, he had a turn already. Do I have to give him two turns?"

"Why should I share my laptop with him? It's my house and my stuff."

"So what if I'm on the team? I don't want to do any work. Let them do it."
