    He doesn't know what's happening to him, so he is scared. When he's scared, he's sad, and that makes him angry. Ideally, one parent should always be by his side, while the other one does the day-to-day stuff. Then you swap. He needs all your patience. He will always have to have one of the grown-ups attention. That's a given, so no need to be upset or angry about it. When you are calm, sit and come up with a plan of how you can give him all that attention and how to balance things. Not easy, but don't think about it. Just treat it as a fact. And half a relaxing bath. He needs you calm, to be his rock.

      If it wasn't just myself and his two sisters that could easily be done but I have to split my time between them all plus all the normal day to day stuff normally if I'm with one of my daughter's the other will be with my son (but he doesnt always want anyone near him)he also has walkie talkies which he uses to talk to me if he wants to tell or show me something but he doesn't want to come to me. I don't get angry or even shout at him as he can't process them sort of reactions and it just upsets him also he cant deal with loud noises so it would just make things worse for him . I just need some sort of way to try and help him deal with his emotions in a positive way instead of a negative
