My 9 year old stepson has been diagnosed with Tourette's. He also often has violent temper tantrums. What I have read about Tourette's does not say anything about tantrums. He becomes so violent at times that he doesn't care if he hurts anybody, he doesn't care if he breaks or smashes things. He will scream, cry and lash out and sometimes this can last for an hour more. I also have 3 year old and 15 month old boys. I'm worries what impact this is going to have on them. It's very worrying because as. He gets older his violence is getting worse. At his natural mothers house he has pulled knives out which is quite disturbing. I feel my hands are tied because I'm the step mum. I don't know what to do.
