No suddenly and not really temper tantrums like a little kid. My son will be 8 on Monday and if things don't go the right way (he's a rule kid) then he gets mad, clenches his fists, yells. He'll stay like that for a while, he doesn't know how to calm himself down quickly or how to not get so mad so quickly. I think he's experiencing emotions that are new to him...kids talking back to adults, kids, doing what they want when they want, being sneaky. He started school a year later then others his age, since his b-day is in Aug, and was never in day care. He was home w/me and was just a good kid. He's going into 2nd grade and is seeing things he's just not used to seeing. I hope your son gets over his tantrums soon...they are no fun for anyone involved.
