My son is 2 1/2 and has an aggression problem towards other children. He is in a day care setting when I am at work. I am told that my child hits unprovoked with whatever is handy, he will not concentrate during story time, he has choked a child, hit an infant with a shoe...Do I need to go on? He does not display this behavior at home. He does throw the occasional temper fit, or has taken a swing at me a few times. He also does not display this behavior when we are with his cousin who is a year younger than him. We only see her about once a month. His day care provider has told me that she feels he needs medicine. I talked to a psychologist who said that 2 years old is too soon to tell anything. She also told me that if he has something such as ADD, he would be that way all the time. Does anyone have any insight?Answer Question
Your daycare worker is not a doctor. Don't listen to her. I would call your Ped with any concerns you may have. Also, you may need to find another form of discipline concerning the hitting, throwing, and chocking other kids. Sounds lke he's acting out because you are away from him.
