Why is my child aggressive? How should I deal with my child's aggression? Have you ever wondered why your child gets so angry or irritated? What are the possible triggers? What should you do as a parent?


It is important we behave as adults and look for effective ways. And that we identify triggers and then handle accordingly. Some of the ways you can handle this include


  • Teaching your child about feelings - if he is able to identify and label feelings, so they get a good understanding of emotions.

  • Thinking of ways that can make your child calm and relax - Encourage them to engage in activities that can help them with their anger. This may include reading a book, coloring, playing, dancing etc.

  • Don't give in to their anger to avoid making these a habit. Rather, think of creative ways.

  • Avoid watching violent shows, movies etc.

  • Set a good example yourself

  • Appreciate their good behavior


It is not a good idea to yell at kids as it is harmful and can lead to exhibiting problem behavior.
