My 4 year old son can at times be pretty much perfect. He listens, behaves well and is a loving affectionate fun kid.
Over the last 12 months I have noticed some concerning behavious and am wits end thinking I'm done everything I can.
On occassions he has gotten so angry to the point where all he does is cry hysterically, and scream and grunt and hit, sometimes he even hits himself....on this particular night I grabbed him and fully clothed I took him into the shower to try and calm him down, he got worse then 20 minutes later he happily let me get him dressed and he went to bed.
He often tells me he's 'angry'. When he misbehaves badly I talk to him about how it affects other people and that he needs to behave so we can do nice fun things and he agrees and says he's sorry and by the time he's finished the sentence he's back doing the same thing.
He often talks in a very angry agressive tone and says stuff like wanting me to put him on the road and squash him with my car.
He often says he can't do something when he has done it plenty of times before.
Lately when he gets in a mood, I just let him walk off and do what he needs to do and then he'll come back 10 minutes later and tell me he's happy now.
I split from his Dad a year ago and I have no doubt that has impacted on some of his behaviour but I'm not convinced that is entirely it.
My Nan looks after him twice a week when I work and even she says that he is a very angry child and on occassions he has bitten and kicked her.
I don't know what to do.
Is this normal behaviour or should I take him to see someone.
