I think it sounds like you have some OCD going on. I recommend seeing a doctor and getting some therapy.

It seems pretty obvious from your posts that he's happy with the way he is, you made several references to "helping him better himself". Maybe he doesn't want to be any different, maybe he feels...

Are you kidding me? Are you saying that you lost your temper once and you think you caused PTSD in your toddler and caused him to stop talking? No. Just no. You are over reacting majorly.
