Aggression In Children

ParentCircle, ParentcircleParentCircle

Most parents pamper their children like princes and princesses. But there are times when the smiling, cherubic faces become nasty and aggressive and parents are unable to comprehend the source of this aggression.

Children become aggressive for many reasons and parents should not panic. Parents.com says children may be unable to handle aggression and turn their energy towards violent behaviour like kicking, biting and hurting themselves or others. Parents should look for ways to spot aggression in a child.

According to an article published in popsugar.com in 2016, while aggression can be caused by genetics, modelling and behavioural disorders, it can also be a sign of physiological delay. Some signs that indicate an aggressive child include:

  • Being verbally forceful and indulging in screaming and name-calling.
  • Having a hard time controlling their emotions.
  • Finding it difficult to interact with others at school.
  • Having difficulty in concentrating.
  • Experiencing problems with self-control.

If your child has this kind of an aggressive behaviour, it is up to you to help her develop judgemental skills, self-discipline and the ability to express her feelings in an appropriate way rather than in an aggressive way.
