My son has had his share of temper tantrums, but they haven't been too terrible. In the past month he has started to lash out with tantrums that are so full of rage that I have been left in tears! He screams as though being tortured & has started hitting me on occasion too. When he gets going, he is out of control and he can't even decide what he wants- he changes his mind 6 times with in 30 seconds as he's screaming bloody murder! I don't know how to help him deal with his anger and I'm worried about him. Is this normal toddler behavior, or should I place a call to the doctor?

Talk to the pediatrician, they may recommend getting an evaluation done, sometimes behavior disorders start to appear around that age.

I put my son on time out until he is calmed down i would not give into his behavior and make sure he knows hes not getting anything with his behavior. Good luck

I wish I could offer advice, however please know that I feel for you! It would worry me too. I think you should call the doctor or the nurse to see what they say definitely.
