In brief: Talk to his doctor.

While it's true that everyone has a different temperament, if you feel your child is outside of the normal range for his age for behavior &/or mood, it's time to see his doctor.

There is a difference between active and having temper. A healthy child is quite demanding and need a lot of attention.

I have published a book on kindle which provides guidance to parents with children who have behavior problems.
It is called: parenting the kids according to a child psychiatrist and sells for only $5.95. The book may help you to help your child's behavior. Good luck.

Check with your child's doctor first.
Your child may be going through a growth spurt or a developmental change. There may be family stresses affecting him. He may be sick with an illness which is not easily apparent. You may need some additional behavioral help with him from a counselor or therapist.
