Handling agression of a kinesthetic learner.
Created by Updated on Jun 18, 2015
My son is 2y 3m old. His style of learning is kinesthesic . His mood changes very fast. Recently we have admitted him into pre-nursery. Every morning he throws tantrums to get ready for school. The moment he sees his school bag, he gets aggressive. Im seeing a lot of behavioural changes in him since he has started going to school. He get angry & aggressive very easily. Does it happen with every child, when he starts going to school for the 1st time? I'm also concerned, as he's a kinesthetic learner. Will he be able to cope up with the school type of teaching? How should I, as a parent, help him grow & understand his needs. ?

Hi Gaurav, All toddlers show aggression at one stage due to the inability to communicate what they feel or want. not able to communicate properly/fully leads to frustration and that turns into aggression. Help him express his feelings through words as much as possible. Say some thing exciting things about school that he could look forward to. Try to acknowledge that he is sad going to school. but at the same time do not show your anxiety. Your reaction to his behavior would in turn help him manipulate the situation. Every time he throws tantrum before going to school, try to be consistent on your reaction. Do not give in once and next time force him to go to school.
