Re: What's up with my kid (7yr old)
In Waldorf circles, there's a lot of emphasis on the 7 year change, which can begin anywhere from 5.5 to 7 years old; basically, it's like a first adolescence -- lots of developmental changes all at once, making kids irritable, clingy, boundary-testing, etc. to a huge degree. Some things that may help: lots and lots of physical outlets for big energy burn; more responsibilities at home to mark him as a "big person" especially in contrast to younger siblings; space to feel his emotions and gentle, yet firm boundaries and expectations.
This page has some information on dealing with the seven-year change from a waldorf perspective.
