comment Destructive when unattended
You're wearing him out before bedtime, right? At 7 he's old enough for organized sports (if you're lucky enough to have some around there), or maybe he can bike or ride a skateboard or just do laps around the yard. (Our pediatrician says no running (running as in what adults do for exercise and stress relief, not just tearing around like kids do) until 8 for our kids, to give their tendons time to mature enough to handle the pounding of a run, but your pediatrician knows your kid much better and might have another opinion.

@Joe, you should make this an answer, 'cause it really is. "He's found something new to try out and will do it until it's not as much fun," and "adjust naptime (and invest in ear protection for yourselves)." :)

comment Understanding the idea of “fears” as a young child
I like "not safe." My 6-yr-old often calls a movie or show "scary" when she's feeling anything uncomfortable, and it almost always comes down to "not safe."
