My 7 year olds behaviour has just gone out the window!!!! He is generally a good lad. But just recently he has been so naughty! Can anyone give me some advice please. Im not sure if it is because he has just moved into Key stage 2 at school. But I am now dreading weekends! We - my parner and I take him out loads cram loads into a weekend as he is only with us everyother wkend as he goes to his dads. He is relatively good during the week but even that is getting worse. But of a weekend we take him out and he shows off plays about, cheecky ness I cant talk to him he doesnt listen and my parner just doesnt stand a chance. My parner would normally be able to back me with disapline but at the moment neither of us are getting anyware. What has gone wrong? I even asked him why he was being so naughty and he doesnt know. I have said we will stop things from him. The reply was SO! when he lost the 1st item!!!! Grrrrr what do we do????
Bit of a tricky one. I've got a 7 year old and he has just started playing up recently. It might be an age thing as he has been pretty good until now but I've noticed he's becoming a lot more assertive and aware of himself and is "pushing the boundaries" more now. I think my eldest (now 13) went through a bit of a funny stage around that age too. It might be changes in his hormones or the change in school work. While I'm usually a believer in nipping things in the bud it might be an idea to leave him for a while to see if he grows out of it. I'm not sure what else to say - I suppose you ask an expert if you are really concerned about him.
