Dealing with rage in 4yo

Any tips? I'm at my wits end with my 4 year old boy, I just don't know what to do, he's hitting, kicking, throwing and screaming in my face, every time I try to teach him something or do his homework he gets really angry, he's also regularly hitting our pets and saying he wants to cut our dog up and put her in the bin. His temper seems to have got worse since starting school. Does anyone have any advice to offer about dealing with rage in young children?

Over tiredness?

Possibly, and he's a picky eater too so possibly that? He's such a sweet natured boy but he flies into these awful rages and I just don't know how best to respond

Maybe he needs a decent snack when he gets home. Wholemeal toast with peanut butter or something else sustaining.

And, at 4, I'd tell the school where to stick their homework. He needs some downtime.
