Not enough info. Age? Does he live with you? How/where is dad when he's raging? Does he have some sort of disability? What boundaries/rules do you have in your home? What does he do when he's "raging"?
with my 5 year old, if he feels the need to "rage" he can go to his room and yell etc. all he wants and then after I MAY (depending on circumstances) talk and/or cuddle him or just have him follow through on what he was supposed to do (if he was raging b/c of something he needed to do) and then he has to clean up whatever mess he made and we go on.
I know that I like to walk away and deal with my anger so I allow my child the same space (my mom disagrees) So I know that family habits and dynamics are an important part of this question.
