My 9 year old son loves to pretend that he's a werewolf. His father and I are divorced (2 years separated and 2 more divorced) and I have physical custody, but the father has visitation. At first, I thought he was just acting out. He has been diagnosed with ADHD and does take Concerta once a day for that. However, I really thought he'd have grown out of this werewolf business by now. He's very imaginative; jumping up and down on the furniture, sniffing, growling and the like, but sometimes, I just want my little boy and not the werewolf! When I hit my ceiling and tell him to stop, he does, but he gets so sad. Any help would be appreciated...thanks in advance...:)
It is probably just a phase. Make some rules about being a werewolf. No jumping on furniture. Only on the floor. and when I say enough you stop and be my little boy again. No pouting.
