my JM is ugly

Hello JM lovers
need some advice from you about my tree issue.
My JM is almost 10 feet tall already and because it came with the house I am ot sure his kind(I belive it is glowing ember).Last year he grew 6-7 main branches like 3 feet tall each which was very nice.
The problem comes that this year because of new grow and regularely rain all those nice branches bended a lot and my tree looks more like a willow.Beside that all kids in the neighborhood are tempted to pull the leaves out.
Should I prune the tip of the branches or just leave it alone and it may recover during the summer.
Should I help it with some kind of support(even that will be hard to manage)?
Thanks and sorry I do not have a picture right now.

If you are just talking about the new growth that will firm up later without interference from you.
