Handling Violent Kids

ParentCircle

Did you get shocked when you received a call from the principal of your child’s school, stating that your child had beaten another child? For, until that moment, you had thought your child was an epitome of respect and would never resort to aggression against anyone. Do not fret. You are not alone. Having said this, you need to act and act soon. As a parent, your obvious wish is to see your child emerge successful in life and for that, you need to help your child get over the rebellious habit. We live in an era where children are constantly exposed to violent acts in games, movies and what not.

It is extremely important you distinguish between aggressive behaviour and violent behaviour. Not all children who are aggressive end up becoming violent. As a first step, you need to meet the teachers of your child at the school to understand the various elements related to your child’s violent or aggressive behaviour. You will then need to figure out if this behaviour has been affecting the academic performance of your child. Have your child’s grades/marks dropped in recent times? You need to look for behaviour management programs to understand if you are getting it right when it comes to the art of discipline. As suggested in Livestrong.com, “No single technique addresses all types of aggressive behaviour, but certain actions help prevent or reduce school violence.” So, as a parent, you need to be proactive and take strict measures to ensure the situation doesn’t get out of control. This ClipBook helps you do exactly that. Click to understand more.
