Another one with a new episode of aggressive tantrums at this age!
I believe it is some kind of control issue. And a test phase for parents. And it may also have to do with growing up, related to sibling rivalry, not knowing where to fit in: acting more like his 2,5yo brother or acting like his age whatever that should be. It is very hard to deal with for us, since we know he is very capable of expressing himself verbally, but at some moments just doesn't and the only thing he seems to be able to do then is growl like a wild animal, kick, scream, run at us fiercely with the intention to hurt, kicking/hitting doors etc. He is just very physical and totally unrrasonable then and it seems to come from the deepest of his instincts.
Sometimes in play he behaves in a non-verbal, low-level aggressive way too, like fast running, growling, making some animal noises, being very physical, sometimes it is so different than the way other children around him are acting, that I may burst into laughter because it is so different and sometimes funny. (Sometimes it is frustrating too.) And he likes that kind of attention :-). Which doesn't mean he does it all to make us laugh or get attention, it's just really an aspect of his at these moments. Also, he sometimes enjoys to make up a language of his own and babble meaningless phrases to someone directly, or on the phone, which seems really impolite but it is just fun and like a practical joke for him, and a test towards others it seems. He is a very spirited kid with a unique, slightly unusual, but fun, and definitely interesting character.
Wonder what else we can expect with him
Whatever, bumping this thread.
