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.

hi, i am a mother of 3 years old son. i am not an expert but i can see that your son is frustrated of something and is expressing his stress in biting and shouting. the proof is that he used to be happy and now his behavior has changed. Try to find root cause of his stress (jealousy, poor attention, change of house, nursery or any lifestyle change..) and solve it and give him at the same time a lot of attention and love and support. Do not shout at him or punish him but be patient till he gets out of it.

I very much relate to you. My preschooler was once a really happy little baby and as he got to be 3 and now 4 he is angry, impulsive and intrusive with his big brother. It's so frustrating isn't it? Most children benefit from knowing 'what is okay' and what is 'not okay.' Let him know you understand he wants his brother to play with him, but he MUST use his words or come get you to help him. Let him know he may never use his hands.... It's not uncommon for the youngest children to do anything they can to communicate that they need attention. They may bite, hit, and become so overbearing. Any attention to them is better than no attention. However, this type of behavior, must be observed carefully. If you feel he is effecting your family life and his social world/interactions, you need to seek professional help. There may be a larger problem at hand.  When our son turned four we could no longer tolerate his anger outbursts and lashing out on others, and once we got help from another professional (besides myself) it made the world of difference.  You may also find my book helpful in dealing w/your son and teaching him how to appropriately expressive himself. It's called, "The Go-To Mom's Parents' Guide to Emotion Coaching Young Children."
