My grandson, 8 years old, has had a sudden change

My grandson, 8 years old, has had a sudden change in behavior over the past year. He's become angry, saying we're making fun of him, got in trouble in school last year (doing better this year, but still a very unhappy child), wants only to read or play video games, does not want to interact or be touched. He's disrespectful when talking to an adult, taking any question they might ask as an affront of some kind. He used to be a happy child, loving to tell you what he has just learned or read. He didn't like his teacher last year, which might have had some bearing on his changed behavior, but it seems he should be over it. I'm wondering about some kind of neurological disorder.

My grandchild is 2 yrs old at the moment not eating a great deal, just chews and spits out the food. he has started with diarrahoe yesterday has runny yellow sour smelling stools and yesterday went to the toilet about 7 times. He doesn t seem to be in any pain and slept through last night from 7.00 to 7.00am this morning but woke up with very runny yellow sour smelling stools again. My son gave him some rice this morning and just boiled water. What could be the problem.

My grandson, age 4, coughs at night after swimming. His coughing water doesn t happen every time he swims, but sporadically. How do we prevent these episodes and are they dangerous. He had RSV as a toddler and I m wondering if that made him more prone...?
