You have set your question out very well. It is difficult to be sure about your son without being able to see him. Many children go through a period of having temper tantrums at this age and this can be quite normal and is a passing stage. These episodes do not usually occur so regularly and are not as frequent as they seem to be with your son.His episodes also appear to be more like anger episodes than the usual temper tantrums.Head banging which he did earlier is either an attention seeking habit or a soothing habit that some children use when they are falling asleep.While this may all be normal behaviour and may be appropriate for his age group, anger episodes may be the first signs of ADD or ADHD and can also occur in children with bipolar disorder.You can certainly try to give him Omega 3 which may help him.It would be best to take him to see a child psychologist for an opinion.
