It is very common and totally normal for our kids to become moodier as they leave childhood and enter the tweens and teens. Just because it is normal, doesn’t mean it isn’t painful…for kids AND parents.
My son is almost 12 and seems to have a lot of mood swings. He is generally happy and laid back but will sometimes be overwhelmed with sadness for no apparent reason. Any thoughts?

Gone are the days when we parented on automatic pilot, blindly trusting what we learned at our parents’ knees. The world today is a complex and confusing place; and for the first time in history, the support of close community and extended family just aren’t as influential as your child’s peers… or the social expectations with which they are constantly being bombarded.

It was clear that he loved talking to these kids, sharing his experiences and insights with them. In fact, he would make a great teacher. At one point early in his talk, he actually pulled a young man out of the audience that was talking and not paying attention and made the guy stand behind him on stage throughout his entire presentation. He definitely commands respect!
