Do you stay home with him or work? Either way, find an activity he might like to keep his mind stimulated, like water colors, coloring books, finger paints, play dough, etc. Is there a swimming pool you can take him to? Kids typically love that and it wears them out physically. He may just be bored.

when he shows anger, explain him that u cant understand why he is angry, ask him to tell his feelings without crying and angry.
u can also tell him that anger will take away his power and he will become weaker and smaller. this works for my daughter. give it a try. avoid dealing anger with anger. it wont work for long.
