9 yo moodiness
My oldest has always had emotional issues, ever since his bio dad and I split up when he was 2. He got better for a long time, but now he seems to be having problems again. A lot of times when things don't go his way, he cries. And then a lot of times he just cries for absolutely no reason, and when I ask him what the problem is he says he doesn't know.
He got back from a baseball game a little bit ago, and he was looking upset. He had gotten hit in the chin with the ball when it bounced off the ground. OK, sure, that sucks, but it was over with. An hour later, I find him by himself all teared up. When I ask him what's wrong he says he doesn't know and that's the only answer I get. So I tell him to go take a nap since he's obviously tired or something, which ticks him off but he's lying down now.
We always try to work on having a godly attitude and they are not spoiled by any stretch. So what's the deal, is this just an attitude problem, or do you think there are real issues? TIA for any help.
