My 5-year-old son has always played wonderfully with other children. The past two months that has changed. We've gone through a lot in the past 6 months (had a new baby in October and moved 2 weeks ago, now we have a 2-year-old girl living with us as well). He is absolutely horrible to both the girl living with us and his 2-year-old cousin who is babysat our sitter's house. I don't know what to do. We've tried time-outs, taking computer/video games away, taking tv away, he still insists on picking on them. He'll grab his toys out of thier hands rather than share or even ask for them back. He will try to trip them or push them when he thinks noone is looking. The name calling is awful (you're stupid, a baby, butthead, etc.). The worse part is, is that when he gets mad at them he tells them he doesn't like them or doesn't want them anywhere near him. I've tried everything I can think of. Please help, any advice would be appreciated.
