When is it NOT normal?

So, how do I figure out if something is normal with my two year old or not? Every night I do the super nanny technique with him for three to six hours to get him to stay in bed. Every time I pick him up to lay him back down he bites, scratches, kicks and hits. He has head butt me a few times and broke my glasses. He screams himself hoarse. It comes down to me holding him down against his bed for a long time hours after I just have to do it or snap. I am tired. I am at my wits end. I get new bruises and bites every day from him. I have older children that have to share the top bunk bed or be placed in my bed for their safety. Even during the day he has episodes of sudden anger and attacks whomever is closest. My babysitter is threatening to quit and no one else will take him. He has been like this since about 12 or 13 months. I know two year olds fit and such but none of my other three did this. Help me. Is this normal? I am so exhausted I am afraid I will snap soon.

well, im not gonna judge because i couldnt possibly know how your parenting techniques are because i dont live with you. If your definalty sure that your not just letting him run all over you then you should go have him evaluated by his ped.

Talk to his pedi, get him evaluated. Honestly tho, if someone was forcibly holding me down and restraining me in bed, I would refuse sleep and would put up quite a fight about it too

I would look into counseling ...I'm sorry but for helping go to bed have you tried melatonin the dissolving one. 3 mg it's in a dark blue bottle and purple lid...
