lately our little man has been acting rather awful. Most of the time he's still snuggles, hugs, handholding, etc. But for the most trivial reasons he just becomes furious and says hurtful/hateful things. Recently he's been insulting me constantly that his bunk bed has a storage drawer underneath and not a cool trundle bed therefore I obviously do not care for him as my son
recent blow ups include walking home from school bus he asked if he could have halloween candy for after-school snack. I said nope but he could have THREE pieces after homework. He then proceeded to inform the neighbor we passed that he has the most awful mother on the planet.
And on Wednesday we saw "puss in boots" and since his behavior was perfect during the movie (no loud voice, seat kicking, etc) he was rewarded with 4 quarters for the arcade. I made him give me eye contact and said very specifically those would be his ONLY quarters. He thanked me and said he understood. Then despite my attempts to encourage him to listen/read the sign, he chose to stick all 4 quarters into an obviously broken game machine. He then blamed me and demanded more quarters. When I refused he went bananas and I had to have my husband carry him to the car screaming the entire way.
These anger fits and mean words about my "bad parenting" are very new. 3-5 weeks or so. Nothing has changed. He's amazing in school and has a 3.59 GPA. He's making charts because if he makes end of year honor roll we're spending all of July in Orlando. He's in piano, just had a great birthday, and has more friends than we can even keep up with. He is kind, empathetic, and holds doors open for everyone. Other than turning 7 NOTHING has happened recently to explain these weird defiant outbursts. Someone please tell me if these is normal? And when will the phase pass????
