My son is 4 and is in nursery class at school. He has a speech delay and is also being assesesed for Autism. He can be very violent in his behaviour ie grabbing at children hitting out stranggling etc he does this on a daily basis and we have been tackling it now for years! He has been so bad with it at school the last couple of days he has been sent home, But once he gets hope his behaviour has been great, He has a little sister 17 months and at the weekend etc he will display these behavious towards her also. As a family we are not violent in any way. Is anyone else having similar problems????

Thank you all for your advice. Will def look into homeopathy!! I have also found incredibleyears.com which offer book videos etc to help teach anger management and developing social skills.

Katie, I have a 11 year old step daughter who has the same problems.. She had then when she was in her toddler years and there really was no controlling it the only option was to do your best to hold her down, It went untreated by her biological mother and her father had not seen first hand the damage she was capable of.. Once I came in the picture (age 8) I immediately made contact with a pshycologist and psyciatrist and with counselling and medication the issues have almost completely disappeared.. Most states have a health dept or social services that will get you pointed in the right direction. Also until then.. YOU MUST BE STRONG stand your ground if he is angry becasue he wants something he can't have and will not settle down put him in his room close the door and do not let him out until he has stoped with the tantrum.. (make sure there is nothing breakable in the room with him) You can't give in if you do you are showing him the behavior has a reward.. when he is frustrated but not at temper flare redirect him to something else and keep others in another room if possible.. The one at home treatment that both her dr's have told me (before she had other medications when she was having an episode give her a small amount of childrens benedryl and this will help calm her down after about 30 minutes..

I had problems like that with Colby. I started taking him to see a therapist and his tantrums and everything calmed. Turned out that the reason he was the way he was, is because he had a very high lead level in his blood and it delayed his speech and everything and caused him to have ADD/ADHD but now he's doing well. But I am starting to wonder about Brooke. They did a complete switch!

Part of that IS the speech delay. They become violent because they can't express what they want to say. Seriously though, find a good homeopathic practitioner who can help naturally and quickly. The tantrums will lessen and more speech will begin to come.



We went through all of that with Samuel, who does have autism and a speech delay. He didn't understand what he was doing. His remedy is Sulphur. Now he is the most wonderful and loving little boy. We rarely have a problem thanks to homeopathy.
