I have asked questions about Torren before, but it was about school and being overwhelmed.
This question is about behavioral issues. He has been having more and more melt downs. He's 5 1/2 now. He has never had this many. In years past he would have similar melt downs but it was only perhaps a handful of times each year. Now it seems nearly every week.
I can't get him to stay in a corner or bed to calm down as he is getting bigger, he will kick and hit at times as well. He has a doctors appointment scheduled for July 8th so I plan on discussing it with him as well.
I don't think I'm doing anything to wrong, I follow through with punishment, he gets plenty of exercise, eats pretty healthy(but if you can give me some examples of a good diet to follow I welcome it). He flipped out today because I wanted him to go play in his room.
I did finally get him to stay in his room, with help from his father and he has fallen asleep, I think I need to reinstate nap time, which is going to be a fight in of itself.
What I need help with...
-Diet ideas would be great
-how to handle a child that is growing and can get violent(not extreme but enough to make handling him difficult)
-ideas on disclipline and how to get him to calm down when he gets so worked up.
Any ideas and advice is greatly appreciated and I hope this all made sense.
I don't know much about it, but have heard Fiatpax recommend the Feingold diet.

THIS is the DMG I use. You can do a quick search and see it being used for a lot of different things like ADHD and autism. It's considered a food and is very safe.
