I need help with out 9 1/2 year old. I think puberty has a lot to do with it but I need help to straighten him out. He's getting so mouthy and to top it off he has made a few new friends at school that are known for trouble. He absolutely idolizes them. :( So not only am I dealing with him and his hormones at home he's getting in trouble at school. The teacher has separated him from the "ring leader" as much as possible in class and he's been fine. He is still running with the kid at lunch, recess, etc. and getting in trouble at those times though. He's getting so mouthy and disrespectful. ANY advice? I just feel at a loss here. :(

My kids get grounded when they get mouthy. Video games are the first thing to go. Have you told him you don't want him hanging around those boys? Not a whole lot you can do unless the teachers are willing to keep them apart. It is a rough age you would think that things would get easier as they grow. Little kids, little problem - Big kids, Big Problems. Good luck stay strong!
