My 10 year old son can be very moody also. It makes me fear the teen years even more because I can only imagine it gets worse!

I don't really have any suggestions other than that very occasionally just stopping and calmly saying to him, "Come and have a cuddle mate" and then after the cuddle saying something along the lines of, "sometimes it helps to tell someone why your in a bad mood instead of just acting on it. Do you want to talk about it?"...sometimes that helps to diffuse the situation. Hopefully in the long run it will mean he's more likely to verbalise his feelings rather than just getting over emotional and out of control.

You're not alone, others have teen moments with their 10 year olds too, and sometimes that in itself helps us get through the day :)

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
