He sounds very angry and is certainly having temper tantrums. If he has these temper tantrums you must leave the room and only return when he stops. He also seems to have a very blocked nose which may be due to enlarged adenoids. This will interfere with his sleeping pattern and cause him to be tired and grumpy in the morning.You need to have him seen by a doctor to advise as to what needs to be done about his very blocked nose.

I also have a" terrible two" with tantrums it's a passing phase. Take him to an ENT and have his adenoids checked out.

All the best

The temper tantrums is probably a phase he is going through. Try and ignore him, and be firm with him without losing your temper. Do not smack him, just say no firmly.
Use salex or Ocean spray for his nose - it is available at pharmacies without a script. You can use this as often as you need to, to keep his nasal passages clear. It is a salt water mixture and has no side effects and is completely safe.
