: I completely understand your concerns! A child does all of these for seeking attention. You need to avoid scolding him when he is behaving badly as that would mean giving him attention. Rather start praising him when he is good. For instance, when he behaves well, hug him, praise him, clap for him & give him a smile. Talk politely & avoid shouting or scolding him. Also, you need to teach him the appropriate way of expressing anger and frustration. Add words to his vocabulary, which express his true emotions. For instance, "Are you upset about something?" "What makes u angry?". If he says yes, acknowledge his feelings. Give him options by asking him what would make him feel better - say a long drive, or be going to the park or even listening to his favourite song would work wonders. Or else divert his mind and involve him in a play or some other thing. Hope this will be of help to you! Take Care
