You are correct, your son is getting to be a little bit old for temper tantrums and it is completely unacceptable that he should hit you. You must be firm with him and show that you mean business. Speak firmly and clearly. Tell him to 'Stop that immediately!' when he starts with a tantrum. If he won't listen walk away from him. If he continues to cry and perform put him in his room and close the door. Tell him he can only come out when he is quiet again. Do this every time he starts with a tanrum. He will soon stop. Once you let him out of his room do not mention his tantrum at all but focus his attention on something. Drumming should be a good diversion.
