    I urge you to talk to your son's pediatrician about his behaviors.

    These types of outbursts do not just 'go away' - your son needs help, and he needs you to help him get it.

    I'm sure he doesn't understand why he is acting out, its probably very scary for him.
    As your son gets older and older, his violence will most likely increase, so getting a hold on what is going on now, is imperative.

    The pediatrician is a good place to start, then he may refer you to a Child Psychologist for evaluation.

    Take care, and good luck to you!
