First thing I would do is examine my own behavior. Where is my child learning this behavior from? What kind of example am I teaching him/her in how I interact with people? If the answer is not there, then I would sit him/her down and try to find the root of the hostility. If that fails, I would schedule an appointment with a child psychologist to help solve my child's anger issues.
