Thank you for writing to us.
I think that your child has some sort of mental or psychiatric issue which can be considered normal in children. The retaliation in children is a normal thing that is seen in the young age groups.
This happens because of the phases of growth and they will change with time. Talk to a counsellor or a Child psychiatrist. They will help the child with behavior therapy to help you.
Hope this helps you. All the best.
