My DS is being stereotypically 'naughty', it's like he's had a change of personality since going back to school.
He's always been so good, but for the past few weeks, he's...
- been snappy, had a teenage attitude, shouting, saying horrible things
- saying aggressive things ('I'm going to punch you' to sister)
- having emotional tantrums and getting angry when he's emotional)
*always being backchatty and repeating annoying phrases
- hyperactive, not listening to instructions, constantly 'messing'
He's literally being a different child.
I'm anxious that it's my parenting and I'm failing, and I'm stressed about the influence of screen time and the influence of SC.
Hoping someone can jump on and reassure me that children can go through random difficult phases at this age and I'm thinking too much into the reasons why.
I just feel like I've done something wrong.
