Children become moody when they feel out of control. They usually feel this way when they are not able to communicate their feelings of stress/fear/anxiety/confusion, they are in some pain or they are feeling very controlled and restricted by their environment. Do not shout at him when he is moody, do not judge or criticise him. Instead explore and understand the cause of his moody behaviour. Talk to him about his emotions using an emoji chart. Educate him about emotions and help him understand his emotions. Tell him you are there to support him. Increase his self-esteem by praising him for all the positive things he does and the acceptable behaviour. Take him away from the situation that is making him moody, hug him to show him you are there for him. Teach him what he can do when he is scared or angry. you can talk to him about different way of addressing it like coming to you and hugging you, talking to you, holding a toy that will calm him, singing a nursery rhyme. You can read to him, sing to him play with him in order to redirect his behaviour and change his mood. Once he is calmed down and in a better mood you can explain to him as to how his previous behaviour was unacceptable and teach him better coping strategies in similar situations. Take care.
