  • I think going through these spats of anger issues at this age can be a normal thing. My daughter has shown bits of anger streaks before which has concerned me but shes shaken out of them then come back into them.

    One thing you can try though is instead of time out put him to bed. Not just for a little while either I mean full on bedtime for the rest of the day or night. This is a punishment I have had to do with my daughter & she still gets if needed. I am telling you what she does not like having to go to bed at an early hour, the earliest I have ever had to do it is like 4pm. Usually this honestly does the trick.

    Time out clearly is not working so you are going to have to think outside the box for punishments that will work. Another thing we did when my daughter was smaller was hold her hands & feet so she couldnt move them. We'd hold them until she fussed & told her she could have them if she was being good.

  • Try sitting and holding him and rocking him when he gets like that and see if that helps him calm down.
