What do you do if a child with bipolar disorder has a tantrum and is destroying property in the home?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Get help: Tantrums and aggressive outbursts are often symptoms of the disorder and can respond to appropriate medication. Behavioral interventions often don't work until the mood is stabilized with medication. Working with a good child therapist is often very helpful in establishing how to deal with negative behavior, again after the mood is stabilized.
