My only son is very tender hearted kid, quiet, nice, doing great at school, very responsible,
It's been 2 weeks since he first mentioned to us that he felt bad about what he did to friends at school which is not a big deal at all such as accidentally kick his friend; and there more other little things. We "lectured" him a few occasions saying that if he always felt bad over everyday life little things , he'll always feel sad and upset, and that'll waste his energy and time. I am so worried that he always had something he thought he did (bad ones) in the past and he said that makes his chest hurt. He became very easy to cry,sad. Yesterday he said he felt bad watched TV called "100 sexiest women"; felt worst that he kinda "enjoy it". He know he's not supposed to see it. I said that's normal having curiousities at his age, that is not a bad things. I felt he had something else deep down. Does he or we need counselling?

I agree with the pp! Martial Arts teaches WAY more than self esteem, it teaches respect, honor, self control, excellent way to relieve stress. I'm totally supporting the martial arts aspect. I also agree with the counseling thing as the pp mentioned. Kids open up to others better and gives them an "outsider" to talk to. This is such a hard age for children. Hugs to you all!!
