My son for the last 2-3 weeks seems so unhappy and angry. The littlest thing and he will get angry quite quickly, has a tantrum and then cry for a few minutes then clams down as if nothing has happened. He also seems to want me (mummy) all the time, not even to cuddle in to just to be there? At times he also seems to unhappy, he will say he has a sore tummy if someone had shouted/given him a telling off? He is 3, almost 4 - Is this normal for a child his age?

I think it's pretty normal for kids around that age to get unsettled and clingy - the world can be changing a lot around them (particularly if there have been changes in their life: starting nursery, timings changing during the day, etc). There's some useful advice here: http://www.mommyshorts.com/2011/07/10-ways-to-encourage-independence.html
