What the Expert Says:

I am sorry to hear about your son's behaviors and their negative impact on your family.  I am not sure what has caused your child to change from a sweet one-year-old to a biting and pinching 3-year-old.  Have you talked about this behavioral change with your son's regular health care provider?  Sometimes, hormonal imbalances, such as hypo- or hyperthyroidism, may cause behavioral issues in children. On another note, is there family history of mental health problems?  If so, perhaps seeing a therapist would shed light on your son's behaviors.

I think that the first step to take would be to talk with your child's regular health care provider as he or she can help you in your child's evaluation and connect you with the community's resources.

Best regards.
