I am worried about my 3 year old grandson!he has been hitting,bitting,cursing,and has been displaying uncontrolable fits of anger.Don,t get me wrong most of the time he is fine,smileing,laughing,he eats well,and plays well with others.I do know there is a medical history od bi-polor,and adhd on his father,s side of the family.I wonder if he needs to be tested?
Because of the history, i say yes. any time of aberrant behavior should be brought to the attention of the child's pedi. Even if he doesn't have any of these problems, he may be mirroring behavior he sees at home. Kids this age love to mimic.

I have the same problem with my 3 year that is turning 4 next weekend. I have an anger problem, bullying the other kids at the school and he has never done that before. At home he started to scream at me and fighting. What can I do to help him calm down?
