What is aggression?
Aggression is basically a forceful, attacking sort of behavior. This aggressive child behavior occurs quite often in today’s children and early teens, due to a number of reasons.
Reasons that may lead to aggressive child behavior:
Sometimes parents are unhappy with their children, they treat them harshly and sometimes even make them feel unwanted; this result in the aggressive child behavior, cursing himself, hating his life and hating the people around him. Nowadays bullying at school also results in the child being stressed, or frustrated because bullying has really adverse effects and it prevents one from staying happy or even feeling safe. A child may be under aggression if his teachers or the best of his friends are giving him a hard time. Poor supervision and harsh discipline at home and school may also result in the child being stressed. In teenagers, aggression is likely to develop if they are prevented from doing what they want to, and literally WANT to do. A child gets aggressive if he isn’t getting proper attention at home. Child abuse is also one of the major factors that result in aggression.
Role of parents: Parents play an important role in a child’s life throughout, and it is vital for them to play a role even in this case and help their children to overcome their aggression problems by taking a number of steps. - Parents should try to find out what is going on in their child’s life. Why is he facing this aggression problem so often? Is he just tired and stressed or does he want attention? Did something at school happen which resulted in him having a bad mood? - Parents should also spend more regular relaxed time with their child, appreciate him for his good qualities, give him some freedom and space, and give him proper attention. These measures can help a lot, to cure the aggression problems which are so often in children nowadays.
