Mood swings. Could it be puberty already?

My autistic son has been having crying jags out of nowhere and he gets sassy about everyday things. He'll be 10 in May. This is so not like him.

  • My oldest got that way around age 10 and now at almost 12 he is getting hair in his armpits and a peach fuzz mustache. And he is growing like crazy. He has always been tall, but now his shoulders are broadening and his feet are enormous.

    So it might be beginning, but I wouldn't worry too much for a year or so.
