Well, my 4yr old son has aggressive rages in preschool as well as home. for some reason he reacts with choking other children, at home he quickly tries to choke at the slightest little thing that may bother him. We are currently in the process of setting up IEP testing through MPS. He can be the sweetest most loving lttle boy and in a second change to a very angered and upset little boy. He does lie alot, sometimes it seems almost constant. He knows the difference between being nice and being naughty, for the most part he is doing better at preschool, they have set a stricter routine and it seems to be working. But there is aggression if a child sticks out his tongue or bothers him. He has been well socialized since birth, but likes to be isolated and by himself at school. He does not sleep well, barely if that. It's draining us. He has no respect for me at all, but understands the meaning of respecting our mother, and when he is not doing it. At a flick of a switch he is screaming at me and making mean faces and scolding me. I've tried to get him into a therapist and the pediatrician, basically everyone tells me that it's the age, until he passes the age of 5years old, they really wouldn't be able to find anything or do anything. This has been going on since he has learned to walk and talk. I want to help my son and I can't seem to find out how. If anyone has experienced this please help, or if someone out there knows what I am talking about please, any advice is welcomed. I just want to help him, there is an obvious problem and I feel like he is just trying to find help too. He's my best friend, and then it feels like he wants to be my enemy.

And for that matter, dont try to medicate them yourself!
