start with what his diet is. there are dyes in most that make kids act the way yours is. its a red dye, but not sure what. its it more things than you think

has there been a change in the home of any sort? different work shifts, problems between you and your hubby/SO (if you're not single) he could be acting out for attention. if you're a SAHM, try doing more things with him. take him to the park, library, the mall, just OUT with him.

hope that helps some!
