Is your child getting aggressive? Even worse, is your child getting physically aggressive?


Toddlers can sometimes get aggressive and even physical, they may hurt themselves or hurt others too. It is important that parents understand their problems, the reason for children’s aggression and look for ways to tackle these in a positive manner. The most important thing is to keep calm.


You should be very careful of how you should handle your child’s behaviour and aggression.


Make sure you don't give in to tantrums or aggressive behavior, appreciate your child whenever he does something good, help your children learn to express themselves, understand their patterns and what makes them angry. Involve them in creative ways and enter healthy distractions. At the same time, also make it clear that this sort of behaviour is unacceptable. Leave the child alone instead of giving in to the anger. At the same time, do keep a watch from far away. Also, control your anger, stay calm and stay strong.
