Need Help!! My 3year old is very violent. Have been to Dr's 4 times, they keep putting it off as a tantrum. He did have speech delay. but after surgery and speech therapy he talks very well. He is youngest 4 kids. He will scream, hit, bite, head butt, scratch, pinch, and throw things at people or himself. If mad this will go on for hours. But will do it spontaneously as well. Hit others even when has no trigger. Have tried everything I know to do. Time outs, getting eye level when talking to him. Has got to point have to restrain and hold him so does not hurt himself or others. This usually goes on for at least 30 mins to 2 hours a couple times a day... Fell like an awful mom!! Can't even take him on outings cause behavior worsens if has to many people around him. Exsample( went to play ground he bite someone's child, and when I tried to get him and say we were sorry he kicked me in my face. I try and be consistent with concequences. Really need some advice. Help

I also have trouble with disipline, If you get on eye level they cant pay attention to you because their mind is elsewhere. I try my best to stay calm when my daughter is acting out, usually they feed off of your energy level, eventhough it is very aggrivating, try to stay calm. Time out was horrible for me at first, it usually takes me about 30 mins to do a 3 min time out. If they get up keep putting them back and dont say a word to them. Then after they have calmed down, explain why they were there and then ask them to apologize then hugs and kisses. Just let him know that the behavior will not be tolerated. Since I have been doing that, her behavior has been alot better but we still have some outbursts but not as bad as they were.

My 3 year old who has ADHD acts this same way. The best thing to do with her is keep her mind engaged at all times. I found that puzzles work best for her. If she is idle then she starts acting out very badly.

I would look around for a really good child therapist, most kids act out because they are frustrated but this seems extreme, and I think you and he need see the therapist to help work out his issues.
