I understand the "terrible twos" where a child tells his mother "no" and will act out... but this is totally different. My 16 month old, if told "no", will start screaming, then he will run and ATTACK his brother (who is 6) start hitting and screaming at him. Sometimes he will start hitting me or his dad if we tell him no, or if we pick him up to stop him from getting into things hes not supposed to. Last night, he was climbing something at a friend's house, so DF picked him up, and he started hitting him with both hands (just smacking as hard as he could) and when DF restrained his arms he resorted to head-butting. When we got home, he had fallen asleep in the car, and I guess I woke him when I went to unbuckle his carseat, he started flailing at me with both hands just screaming (angry screams). What is going on with him? How can I get him to calm down and understand?
