Acting out after Separation

An_253261 posted:
I am the father of a 26 month old boy. His mother and I have decided to get a divorce. I moved to New York, while she remained with my son in Virginia. Since the separation,3 months ago, my son has begun acting out, becoming increasingly violent with anyone he encounters. Adults and children alike. He bites, spits, slaps, throws thing(mostly directed at faces) and throws temper tantrums at the slightest thing. My question is really several things: Is he acting out because of me, because of my absence? I this apart of the "Terrible Twos"? Finally, Is there anything i can tell his mother to help her calm him and hopefully stop this violent behavior. He's a healthy toddler and has no medical issues that we suspect of are aware of outside of a slow speech development. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
