Talk to him about his ever changing body, mind and soul.... this is a tough time for boys because just like girls they have a mix of emotions, especially if they start getting those feeling of liking someone more then a friend. This can be a crushing time for them also, and boys as well as girls need to know that its ok to have these emotions and talking about them is a good way to deal with these emotions. Boys tend to stuff it all inside and denie everything (tipical male) lol... so don't over ask him if he is ok.. just every once in a while ask him how things are going, give him room but don't let him take his frustration out on you.. we have 2 boys in this stage 11 and 10 and they tend to want to yell at us and the other kids and that is not gonna happen! Good luck hun..
