Hi @Mummabearoffour , thanks for sharing your story. I am sorry to hear about the recent troubles you have been having with your son. It sounds like you have been trying various things to stop your son's behaviour, but that you have not had too much luck yet. I am sorry to hear that your son has been having verbal and physical outbursts. It might be a good idea to speak with someone from your son's school (such as the school counsellor) to let them know about the issues that you have been having with your son and his schooling. They may be able to arrange someone to talk with your son (if that is what he and yourself would like) to get a better understanding of what is making him have these outbursts.
You might also find it helpful to call and speak to a trained counsellor about what has been happening with your son. One helpline that you can call to get some advice and support from is Parentline. We also offer a one-on-one support service that you can access to speak to a trained counsellor for some advice and support. Here is a link for some further information if you are interested. I hope that things will get better soon for you and your family, feel free to let us know how you're getting on .

That is very tricky, it might also be worth calling 1800 Respect, as well as the contacts @Sophia-RO mentioned. This is a hotline where you can discuss a multitude of things with professionals who are experts in abusive and violent behaviours.
