I find with DS that colour additives set him off. I've tried to get all of the ones on that list out of his diet. I've also had to get colour free antibiotics for when he needs them because he turns into a wild beast!!! I think I notice it more now when he has colours, I can see the difference in him where before I cut them out I thought his behaviour was normal for him. He's not a complete angel now but heaps better.
Hi, yes it can be normal behaviour. Children/toddlers often find it difficult to express or control their emotions or feelings.. Well let's be honest many adults don't know how to either 😉 My advice would be to choose a method in dealing with the violence and stick to it. Even if After a week or two and there is no improvement. Kids are very clever, and wonder how far they can push before they get away with it. Consistency is th number one key. I would talk through your house rules and explain the consequences if they are broken and follow through each time.
In conjunction with this I would use a lot of positive praise for correct behaviour. Also having one one on one time together and including him in big boy roles in helping to care for his little sister.
And I just wanted to finish off by saying your doing a great job 😊
