Talking back to me, imitating my voice, extremely loud volumes, hitting his sibling sometimes, not doing what I ask. I told him to take anger out on cushions, not on his sibling. The whacking he gave the cushions! Recently started seeing his Daddy more. May be a link. Anybody see a change in son's behaviour at 6? Help!
You know sometimes it's just a matter of him needing to do a pee, like this time. He'll be hyper for an hour, winding me up & starting nonsense with his sibling while I'm trying to get out the door and then it transpires after confiscating 2 toys and even telling him that my mother used to smack me with a wooden spoon that he just needed to go to the toilet. Would love a break!
I should say in his favour that my son is top of his class, very helpful around the house, charming, funny and an excellent big brother most of the time. Please tell me that the change as he morphs into a 7,8,9 year old won't be too horrific?? [braces herself]
Well I don't know about 7,8,9 but mine is otherwise quite a sweetheart. I have read that things go a bit awry and then they become quite wonderful again at 10. Apparently its a glimmer of their adult selves, sent to hearten you as you stagger unhappily through their teens!
