Q.

My 9 year old son

My son keeps on saying I can''t remember. Gets angry and frastrated because of this. Don''t understand like kids of his age some classmates will even laugh at him. Very emotional about the smallest things. What can I do to help?

This is a good question.It is possible that your son has a form of attention deficit such as ADD. He is also probably being teased at school so he is under a lot of strain now. It would be best to take him to see a child psychologist.
