If he is in school, talk with his teacher and school guidance counselor. If he is involved in sports, talk with his coach. Inform all adults in his life of the changes at home. Also ask your family doctor for recommendations for a child trained counselor. I had to place both of my kids with a child trained counselor after my divorce just to make sure they were "OK".

Thank you so much! he used to be sensitive, he still is but there are things he just wont talk about, he is a little distant with certain people and just acts different... I know his father has become more aggressive with the way he punishes my son, something I never do because I don't have to thank you again so much for your advice!
