Yes, some kids have more sensitive temperaments and quicker attention spans, but patience can be taught, attention spans can be stretched, and children can learn to stop and consider the needs of others.Where is your kid learning this behavior? From siblings? Friends? Neighbors? Relatives? Or might you be reinforcing it by always immediately giving in to his requests?
Reflect on how you typically respond to your child's impatience. Do you roll your eyes and tap your feet? Freak out and yell at him? Bribe him to wait a bit longer? Give in to his whims? Try to take a radical step to speed everything up so he gets what he wants more quickly? Think of the last time your kid displayed this bad attitude, and write below what you will never try again.

Although nobody gets a parenting manual or bible in the delivery room, it is our duty as parents to try to make our kids as well rounded, happy and confident as possible. It is a lot easier to bring up great kids than it is to try and fix problems caused by bad parenting, when our kids have become adults. Our children are all individuals - they are not our property but people in their own right.
