I have an almost 5 year old son who, i am sure like all kids, has bad days, but I am dealing with a little more than that. I have been trying to "figure out" what is wrong with my son for some time now. Aside from the constant arguing, constant talking, not getting along with his cousins, throwing temper tantrums, having to be in complete control, afraid of the dark, not sleeping through the night, has anxiety when i put him in his car seat when he can't see me walk aroung to my door, he is a very sensitive, loving, smart young boy who loves spending time with adults. I have had him to a family counselor who says at this point he is normal, but if the hitting, kicking completely out of control behaviour does not stop, it might be more. I have read and implemented "Love and Logic" but has not helped. I have tried taking away things, it doesn't work. It is almost like he doesn't have any CONTROL over his emotions when he gets upset even with a little thing. PLEASE HELP!!
