I have raised a son, and he had plenty of moody days. The best thing I found that worked was to send him to his room, and read a book. When he was ready to talk , he came to me. Usually it's something that is going on at school, teasing, girls, breaking up with a girl, or just plain HORMONES....Take it easy, give him some time to think about what he is upset about, and tell him you are there to listen when he feels like talking. If this is happening on a daily basis, I would talk to his teachers, and see if it's going on at school. If so, counseling may help. If it's to get some attention, don't give it to him or he will expect it . You are not your son's FRIEND, you are his MOM, remember that!

My daughter just recently went through HORRIBLE mood swings...tantrums in the store, at home (screaming, hitting, kicking, rude, disrespectful). Discovered she needed to go to bed earlier and eat more often...who knew!! Just happy to see my sweet little girl again...

trust me spankings do nothing for mine I have tried that, given him time out and I have tried everything. He is very loved and he gets a lot of attention. He is the only child and it is not by choice either. But I ignore him and he comes up and yells in my face, grabs my arms, or hands....I am so at a loss of what to do. Hid pediatrician wants him to go get help.

mine is the same way, one minute he is fine and loves you and the next he is telling you he hates you, and saying all kinds of mean things. What do you do.......

well butt whoopings aren't going to help all the time. Sometimes kids say mean things to get attention, negative attention so just IGNORE him when he's being mean/moody he will soon see that this behavior gets him no where with you and he should change his tone. But if he persist to be mean to get your attention and screams he doesn't like you you get down to his level eye to eye grab his shoulders and say "you don't like me but i love you!" Give him a tickle and his laughter should melt the moodiness away.

Moody is not the word for my Nov. toddler! He has been so angry, cries at a drop of a hat, and yells that I'm a bad mom or that he isn't goin to talk to me or doesn't like me, I'm not his friend. This behavior came out of NO where! He is loved, given everything he wants and needs, and more! He is an only child (not by choice) and I love him to death, but this week he has been horrible and has me crying!! So I feel your feeling of confusion and feeling lost. If you hear of any good advise, let me know. The best I've gotten is whoop his ass.

Maybe you could elaborate. Like is he throwing fits constantly or just talking back?
