My son is 4 ...he is normally a well behaved child but when he gets angry at something or rather when his demands are not met all hell breaks loose... he will become very violent.. biting.. pinching and raising his hand on me is a regular thing.. (last night he threw a heavy toy at me just because o said it's bedtime).. I am at my wits end.. He doesn't do anything to his father... but to me he just ignores every thing I say.. I have given him time outs... made him listen calmy not to raise hands on anyone but to no avail... he just won't listen and recently started talking back.. if I say that's not good behaviour or go to time outs he outright says no he won't go or won't say sorry... So stubborn he has become.. What to do I don't know.. very worried about him... public places tantrums are also becoming very difficult to handle... help me please.. anyone??..

Please don't threaten or embarass the child with the video. In that case we would be aggravating the problem further by making the child furious and helpless. the effort should be to control the anger and not the child. the video is just to make the child ratify that in anger this is how he behaves. Once the child identifies the problem area, he would with yr help try and work out on the problem.

Hi Paromita. I agree with Shikha to a point that try to film him when he is angry. I too face the same problem with my five year old son. Once when he was angry and was stomping his feet I filmed him and then when there was a parent teacher meeting at school I kept threatening him that I will show it to his teacher who thought that he was a very quiet boy. When I showed it to his teacher she calmly told him that this is not right... He sobered down but has that anger. I would say you will have to be very patient and ask him what is it that he likes doing the most. Since its holidays time I would say try doing activities together so when a child's mind gets into creativity he will concentrate less in anger. I also tell my son that an angry persons face is the most ugliest... show him pics or cartoon character faces which have that look... coz kids these days are very conscious on how they look. But please don't raise your hand to hit... it won't solve anything rather it would increase the anger in him...
