Oh @Familyof6 that must be so hard to watch. Leaving school is such a huge time of transition and adjusting and can be enough for anyone to start feeling not quite themselves.
It sounds like you have a really open relationship with your son and it's really great to hear that he opened up to you and told you how he's been feeling. There's some resources for parents here on how to tackle tricky conversations and build resilience to deal with these difficult changes that we're presented with in life.
I'm just wondering if you think he might benefit from chatting with a counsellor about the angry outbursts? You mentioned it often happens out of context, which might mean there are some deeper feelings going on.
Looking forward to hearing back from you!
