How can you help a 6yr old boy with anger problems leading to violent activities both verbal and physical?
Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Hello, Sorry about this problem with him. Please give more details about whether he is destructive or hurts others. If pediatric behavioral therapist is consulted, please write whether any drugs were suggested.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Some kids may benefit from short courses of such drugs.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Further information: J (the 6yr old boy) is for the most part, verbally abusing his mother but has resorted to hitting & kicking. He has also verbally abused me (his grandmother) and a variety of his mothers friends. When not getting his own way or what he wants he throws things around and becomes destructive. He becomes aggressive at bedtime and is not sleeping properly. He is also not eating properly.

Surely he is under stress and if evaluated properly, may come to know what his problem is. If there is no evident external trigger, please manage with firm hand devising a reward and punishment system, to be informed to him and all adults following concertedly.
