I have been doing redirection and gently telling him he needs to wait his turn and helping him find a toy, but this is constant through out the day. I have been shadowing him for months because he is also a biter an pincher, and that isn't always out of frustration but just for no reason.

Does anyone have any other ideas that have worked for them for aggression?
What is his family life like?
Stable? Are his parents involved in his daily life as parents or are they the type to think every "bad" behavior is cute? kwim?

Curious as to how his verbalization skills are too?
