My husband and I are divorcing, but sharing custody. Our 5 year-old son's behavior has done a 180 at school in just one week, and we haven't even moved out of the house yet. He is acting out in anger, which he has NEVER done before. My soon-to-be ex and I are getting along really well, so our son isn't seeing fights or anything like that, but he does know we are moving soon and that his life is changing. We have tried talking with him in every way we can think of, talked with his pediatrician, and gotten him an appt. with a child psycholigst - but that's not for three weeks and preschool is calling us nearly every day asking us to come get him. We both work, so this can't go on. I need advice on how to deal with him and his reactions so that he feels better soon - at least soon enough to handle the move and give him a chance to settle into the new routine. This is breaking our hearts.
