Antidote Patience Self Control Serenity

"Aren't we there yet?"

Dear Dr. Borba,

Our middle son is so impatient that it's driving everyone in our family crazy! He can't wait—or maybe it's more accurate to say he won't wait for anything or anybody. He wants everything ASAP and can't understand why he can't instantly get his way. I'm finally realizing just how selfish his attitude is. He's really thinking only about his needs and never considering anyone else's feelings. His brothers are starting to resent him, and frankly so am I.

BAD ATTITUDE ACT OUT

"MOOOOMMMM! Get off your computer. I need to use it right away."

"I'm tired of waiting, Dad. Let's go somewhere else."
