      Sounds like he might be bipolar. All the kids I have spent time with

      (volunteered at school) that were just ADHD weren’t agressive or

      reacted in any way like this child if they didn’t get their way. But

      my youngest did and not having the internet I really didnt’ have a

      clue as to what caused him to be like that. But now I know he’s

      bipolar and that a lot of those behaviors way back were becaue of

      that.

      Just my 2 cents
