Hi,I am having simular issues with my 10 year old son. He has started to have mood swings. When things don’t go his way he gets angry and act out by screaming and jumping around. The last time it happened he hit at the wall, saying he is angry. These comments has been helpful. He has been taking Adderall for almost a year. I took him in to see his doctor. She has now prescribed Vyvance. I will start him on that today. This has tired me out. He will apologize for behavior saying he doesnt know why he does that. He doesnt act like this in school. So I am trying to figure out the issues. I discipline him by taking things away,having him earn it back. I understand there is a reason he is acting like this but he also has to understand there are rules at home he has to follow.
