Re: 9 yo moodiness
it doesn't really sound like "attitude" to me - it sounds more like he doesn't really know how to handle/express his emotions other than through crying. not to say that that's unusual in any way. sort of like how some people (me) express fear/anxiety as anger.
not really sure what to suggest. maybe just working with him (when he isn't upset) on analyzing what happened in a given situation and what he thought (maybe easier to get at that how he felt, kwim). i think it's just part of growing up really.
