    In my experience, my son was always at his worst in mood and behavior when he was bored and not active and involved enough during the day. Try more sports, exercise, activities, and some chores to rid him of excess energy and keep his mind focused and positively occupied. At six, he might be able to keep his own room clean, do his own laundry and start helping with gardening, taking out the garbage, etc. He can also start learning the basics of cookery and just about anything else he'll need to know in life. Don't overwhelm him all at once, show him how to do things a time or two then supervise instead of doing it for him. Make each added responsibility feel like a privilege of his coming of age. "You are a big boy now and old enough to do this! Do you think you can do it by yourself pretty soon? I do too! I think you'll be great at this!"

    I don't have children, but as a child from a mother who is severely troubled (alcoholic, abusive, trauma), I can only give you the following advice:

    Be honest with your child and tell them everything how it is. Don't assume that they are too young to understand. If my mother came to me when I was little, and explained that she was troubled and suffering from her own afflictions, I wouldn't have blamed myself for every single bad thing that ever happened in my childhood, and I wouldn't have needed all the therapy and healing that I need now as an adult.

    Children need attention and care. If they don’t get it – they become uncontrolled and even rebellious. In most cases, this behavior is observed, when a child becomes a teenager. In this age, boys and girls understand and feel everything better as compared to younger children. And they also find more ways to demonstrate their feelings. As far as your son is six years old only, he may not be able to express everything he feels and he may not even understand what exactly makes him depressed and nervous. I don’t say that you don’t pay attention to your kid (otherwise, you won’t write here). I just say that most parents are too busy at work that they often fail to find time to spend it with their children, even if they wish to. Maybe, this is the reason of your son’s behavior. Try to spend more time with him, share his hobbies and visit sports sections or other clubs (if any) together. Maybe, this will help you handle the situation. If there is still something that worries you, take your time to visit the psychologist. Do not be afraid to ask questions and answer them is the specialists wants to find out your opinion or something. This should definitely help identify the problems and solve them right in time! Good luck!
