Positive Parenting: Curbing Kid’s Aggression

Researchers say kids who are persistently aggressive or defiant in their teens are already showing signs of abnormally aggressive behavior years earlier when they are toddlers.

In Positive Parenting with Melissa Smith, we take a look at how parents can identify and curb some aggressive behaviors early on.

Researchers add that parent’s initial response to aggressive behavior may be to show anger or threaten the child.

They say those ways of responding to negative behaviors are less likely to work.

Children who act aggressively may need help managing their strong emotions and them, and their parents might need additional guidance from a mental health professional.
