What is aggression?
Aggression comes as a result of frustration to express in words; it could be physical, mental and verbal. Some people keep the anger for a long time and do not feel brave enough to talk about, so they burst into anger and become violent. I think mostly weak minded people experience this type of frustration.
What causes Aggression?
Children usually become aggressive because they bottle up things and cannot communicate very well it could be more with children who have brought up by the parents who bring up the children with the authoritarian style. Children also mimics the parents if the parents are aggressive too. Some children become aggressive due to the abuse they experience within the household or from outside.
How to deal with aggression in children?
The important responsibility as parents, we have to remain calm without showing our anger or raising our voice when the child is aggressive so that there is a possibility that the child will try and learn something from it. We should go into discussions about it when there is a calm situation in the household we need to take the time to explain it to them and show them if they continue to behave like this; they will not be acceptable in the social environment. Any bad or good behaviour starts from the home environment and if we allow it to continue the kids will start to show it towards school teachers, students and with the playmates as well. The child might get the wrong attitude thinking that his or her behaviour is acceptable. As a result, the child will end up lonely, so, it should be stopped at the early stages by the parents. Some parents seem to be very calm but the child becomes very aggressive, and unable to relate his or her problems to the parents. If this situation continues, we will have to find out the cause of it, taking into account the school environment or the child's playmates. Maybe the child is experiencing the bullying outside or at the school, it will be a wise move to have a discussion with the teacher and the parents of the friends in a subtle way without committing because you are going to find the cause for it. If we go and say that our child is behaving badly, it is easier to the other people in the discussion to put the blame on our child. As a result, we will not be able to find the cause for it. We as parents should try very hard to talk and train the child that this behaviour is not acceptable at home or anywhere else, by showing genuine love and affection. By doing so, the child will begin to feel that my parents are having my best interest in their heart and will try and be honest with you. When you know the child is aggressive due to the abuse the receive from someone, if that is the case, the kids need to be protected by the parents. Having tried all these if the aggressive behaviour continues, you need to get professional help.
