Behaviors Related To Aggression

Children need to assert themselves. Parents must allow children to fulfill this need; otherwise, parents may find themselves being forced into confrontations for no particular reason. Include the child in certain decisions, involve the child in planning activities, and give the child responsibility for choosing certain courses of action the family may take. Letting a child with strong aggression have some control will go a long way toward channeling this tendency in positive ways. Many children feel they have no say in anything, that no one listens to them or lets them be in charge of anything. For them, it is a terrible and helpless feeling. It doesn’t mean the parents always have to do what the child demands! What it does mean is that the parent must listen to the child. The aggression need can often be met by just listening to and considering the child’s point of view. It can be that simple.
