Aggression in 4 years old child

My son is round 4 years. He was fine tillnow, but since 3 months i notice him that he is getting angry easily. He thrwos his tantrums, if i stop for naything he will make a big scene. He has become very stubbaorn, he wants what ever he asks for. I donot know what is the reason for this change in behavior. Some times he throws the things if he gets angry. He some times breaks the glass, tear the paper and run. Ima really worried that this will continue. I want hime to back to normal

Most important point is the change in the pattern of children life before and now. Also to be noticed the change in the family behaviour. Parents stress results as frustration in children's behaviour and ultimately aggression.We have to be very clear in our mind that children are replica of us as parents. Since he is 4 years now so may be he has just started going to school. And few new behavioural changes adopted from the surrounding friends. Pl. check on the school friends and consulting teacher make some changes in sitting arrangement. May be now a days he is being given less attention than before for some reason and he is trying to divert the attention of parents to him.

In my view, no modicine, no doctor's consulation would give better result than giving total attention and love will improve.

nowadays kids are more aggressive, its a normal behavior, if they are more intelligent they are more agressive. so not to worry, at certain age the kids are more aggressive, wat ever you say they do opposite to that. so if you stop them doing that they will do more.

Hyperactive children might have an emotional component in them for their aggression, find it out by closely observing them for few days. make a note of their activities and the time they spend on each.

Yes their behaviour with other children is important, their human values are important, i heard such children may grow into anti social behaviours in their young adult stage

I faced similar situation because of my son's behaviour when he was of the same age group. This was around 6 years ago. I had taken him to a pediatrician whose wife was a psychiatrist. They mentioned that at this age, this kind of behavior may crop up and as parents, we have to be strict. If we say no to any demand, it should be firm No even if the child throws tantrum.Take him to nearby park and play area so that he can mingle with other children. Overall, it should be nothing to bother if you keep observing and meet the pediatrician once if you feel it needs doctor's attention.
