I can’t offer much advice on what to do. Our 7 year old son was very often violent from a young age and abusive. Saying and doing things that hurt our feelings leaving us feeling desperately sad. On top of everything else over the years it takes it’s toll.

With my son, at some point, I just realised he needed to get it out, so I would let him do his worst while focusing my attention on managing my own feelings while it was happening. Yes it is upsetting and very embarrassing when it happens in public. Over time it has happened less and less.
