Question: My boy is struggling with being out of control- during the course of just one day he can go from overly excited saying, "This is the best day of my life!!!! to being very depressed and moping around spreading his bad attitude to the rest of us. His attitude is affected by his circumstances.
In addition to that problem, he is very out of control with his body- I don't think it is his age- because he seems to be a little clumsy, too- but when he is having the best day of his life- he is jumping around, spinning, flailing limbs- oh, when he plays swords with his brother, he is always hurting him- not at all out of anger, but out of not controlling himself. I don't know how to handle it at all, really. He isn't doing it out of disobience or anything wrong in his heart- but I don't know what to do to get him to have control in these situations. One example- he is always jumping onto the couch by spinning- I always have him leave the room and walk back in and do it again, but it seems most situations aren't that easy.
My main question for you is can you tell me Bible verses that will help with the mood swing problem and if you can think of any wisdom for the second problem I would be delighted!
Thanks for reading this! :)
