My 3 year old is just like any other 3 year old except he has these extreme outbursts of anger. They are not like normal temper tantrums. They start out of the blue and they escalate very quickly. He starts screaming, then throwing things and breaking things. He then progresses to hitting, punching, kicking and even trying to stab and hit people with whatever objects he can find. I usually have to resort to restraining him so he doesn't hurt himself or other people. It breaks my heart to do that. They stop just as fast as they start. He carries on like nothing happened.
I have tried calming him down, getting down to his level, sitting him in his room to calm down, ignoring the behavior....but none of it works (those things work when he's having a tantrum).
I am at a loss. They seem to be happening more frequently...Any suggestions would be appreciated.
