Your son sounds as if he has a significant problem, probably ADHD. It is absolutely no use hitting a child like this until his nose bleeds as it will only teach him to become more aggressive and frustrated.Your son needs to be seen by a paediatric neurologist and a clear diagnosis made of his problem.Do this as soon as you can.
