There is no violence in our home, my husband and I get along very well. My husband works all day and does not come home till night but spends as much time with our 5 year old as he can, he gets up and gets him dressed and on the bus every morning and they do nightly prayers together. I'm a stay at home mom with our 10 month old little girl, when my son comes home from school we chat and play a little but mostly he wants to play with sissy and watch movies (Disneys Cars-All Dogs Go To Heaven.etc.) but lately we have been experiencing violent behavior with him. Since he was 2 he has always had some problems with anger (throwing things, fits lasting for hours and so forth) we've kept it under tabs [retty well, but since the baby has been able to crawl and climb he has a tendency to knock her over by "accident" or "accidently" hit her with a ball or other things, she generally does not get hurt as he's very mild about what he does, but in SCHOOL we are experiencing alot of hitting, shoving, and arm twisting. I don't know what to do he is on the verge of expelltion after only 3 WEEKS OF SCHOOL!!! We have tried spankings, time outs, and reward systems that do not work. I'm at a loss as a parent and need some advice. I'm concidering sending him to a pshycologist. His teachers say he's smart, smarter than the other kids in class, and he says he loves school and his friends there, but we cannont over come this violence towards other.. HELP!!!
