my 20 month old yells and screams and hits my middle guy who is 5. Does anyone else have that problem? I have never seen anything like this.

Yup. Normal part of social development. Correct the behavior with "we don't hit" and remove him from the scene. Correct the yelling with "I can't hear you when you yell" or just start to speak in a very very soft voice ... he will have to quiet down to hear you. It is not a problem you have, just a 20 month old acting like a 20 month old. Give the kid language, as much as you can and soon. Help the kid express her/himself with words so she/he doesn't need to hit and scream.
