97. ACTS OF AGGRESSION- WHY THEY HAPPEN & HOW TO DEAL!
Manage episode 377935525 series 3293499
Is your little hitting? Mine does and it makes me want to yell “how dare you hit your mother” or “who do you think you are, want me to show you how it feels!”
Then I have to remember that this is what I was told growing up and those reactions DO NOT HELP!
What does help is reminding myself that “my child is acting her age.” What does that mean…. Well, our little ones still lack the ability to control their impulses and also lack the ability to verbally communicate what they need or feel. This is usually what leads to aggressive behaviors.
