My son's attitude is changing why??

He's 8. And nothing has changed with his home life or school life. He's acting careless forgetting more stuff and not motivated. Is this a normal stage for boys?

  • Is he having problems in school or with friends. Boys will usually not come out and talk to us about things that are bothering them. You may have to ask his teachers and the parents of his friends. Ask him how lunch and recess and observe any changes in his voice or posture.

  • Puberty at 8??? Wha? Yikes....

    Maybe this is the age that the male species start to experience migration of their brains from their big heads to know...the little head?
