A:   Thank you for contacting ask the doctor.
Any violent behavior in a toddler is a matter of concern and should be taken seriously. Therefore I recommend an immediate visit to a pediatrician. There is a possibility of developing a conduct disorder when the toddler enters the adolescent age. Parents should keep an open eye for the following warning signs :
1. Intense anger
2. Extreme irritability / impulsiveness
3. Easy frustration or frequent loss of frustration.
It is essential you seek a professional help when there is time to train and help the child control the anger in the early stages. You child could be developing a rebellious behavior or may have an underlying condition which needs a detailed history and physical examination.
Hope this information is useful.
