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?
