I am still not sure if my son has tourettes but would be shocked if I got a different diagnosis. The last few weeks I have noticed that my 4.5 year old gets excessively angry if he doesn't get his way. This morning we were playing board games and when I didn't want to play one that he wanted to, he lost it. Stomping and hitting walls and slamming doors, this all could sound normal for a 4.5 year old but he can't stop. He was still mad and stomping more than an hour later. If I can't find something to distract him he would stay mad longer. He makes a hmpfff kind of sound the entire time too and yells. I am not happy about this but don't know what to do cause I don't want to get mad back or discipline him if he can't help it. I sent him to his room till he wasn't mad anymore and he messed that up, this is all new to me is this part of Tourettes or an individual case of Tourettes or just hopefully a phase that he would have whether he has Tourettes or not.
Thanks for any insight.
