At this age kids don't have the communication skills to be able to verbalize their anger all the time. Teach him how to tell you when and why he is mad. Be understanding (let him know you understand he is mad) but don't "give in" just because he is mad. http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html click on Anger, Acting Out, Temper Tantrums, Aggressive Behavior. There are good books which are age appropriate for you to read together and talk about getting angry and how to handle. When you are mad, verbalize it to him, as you are the best example to him.

I would take him to a good child psychologist skilled in play therapy that will work with you to help him deal with this. There is no way a young child (and lets face it plenty of adults) has the coping skills to deal with this. He simply hasn't learned and developed them fully yet. A skilled therapist that specializes in dealing with children will help guide both of you through his healing process. I wish you both all the best.
