Hi all, needing a bit of advice. My ds is 9 (10 February) and generally is a lovely boy. Until we say no especially in the evening. He will shout, cry, say some awful stuff (which he sometimes apologises for in the morning). It started Around June this year, and seemed to stop. But now it can be almost every day. He seems to really struggle with his anger. it will normally pass within a hour or until he falls asleep. Any advice?
Is he generally OK with school and friends and stuff? We had a few weeks of lots of tears and then he finally admitted a boy at school has been being mean to him. Got that sorted and he's been much better again.
It feels like they are at a real inbetween stage, doesn't it? So keen to be more grownup yet not ready to let go of more childish things at times too. I wonder if they have lots of conflicting feelings about growing up (although they probably couldn't articulate it as such).
Thanks for the responses. I think he is also tired, he goes up to bed at 8pm but nothing we do will help him sleep He's sleeping now. School is ok, struggling with the academic side but enjoys it with good friends. He said he was sorry as well and asked for a cwtch.
