My 4 yr old son stopped speaking, whines and cries, and is mean and hits his sister. This all happened after his Grandma passed away, and his best buddy also moved in the same week. I took him to the Dr, they said he was fine. Has anyone else had this happen? What did you do?

sounds like he is expressing his anger and distress over his losses the only way he knows how, I know he is young but a little counseling with a child therapist might help him get over it as well.

I don't think anything is "wrong" with him. Just be there and help him grieve. Try to talk about his grandma and tell him where she is and that she will be there always in his memories and that you will see each other again some day if that is what you believe. There are books on talking to kids about death and loss. Maybe you could pick one up at a guide.
