Your son iis still in the age group where temper tantrums are common. What is of concern here is that he only started with these tantrums about one month ago. You and his father have separated and this may be a possible reason for his behaviour. It would be best to consult a child psychologist for advice as I am concerned that the usual 'time out' method for dealing with temper tantrums may aggravate his resentment towards you.
