I just recently moved from the city 8 months ago to upstate ny. My son was excited about it, but now he's waking up with attitudes, upset when asked to do something, or take care of his hygiene. Any suggestions how to reach my son and get him to open up?

Once the novelty wears off - the adventure is over and real life sets in - kids are really emotional about moving away from friends and things they have become familiar with. Changing schools alone can be very disruptive for them. HE'S GOT ALOT GOING ON! Also, keep in mind that at his age he is going to pull away from his mom and buddy up with his dad or other trusted father/big brother figure. It's a normal thing for boys this age to listen to a male than a female. Does he have another male who can spend some relaxation time with him one on one?
