How can you get a child from trying to hurt other around him and himself?

One of my kids is always hurting people such as putting a stuff animal over his brothers face and putting all his body weight into it. I don't know if he was really trying to sufficate his brother but recent events lead me to belive that he is hurting in some way but won't talk about it.

  • idk where u live but where i live there are free couselors/phsychiatrists..especially for kids..i would defiantely take him to sounds like he has something bottled up..and if whatever it is is still going on you need to find out about it so you can stop it..counselors have a way of talking to children to make them open up

  • We just got him involved with the couselors and are going to be with his school too to get as much help as possible. This is an on going thing that has been getting worst by the day. When he get around other people he starts to behave until he gets comfortable and he has been moved from place to place because he has been kicked out of daycare for hitting other kids and teachers. What would you do?

  • It sound like you need to get to the root of the problem and thearpy may be best. Probably a session for him, and one for the family so you can all be on board with what's going on.
