It can take time and a lot of patience if you are a parent trying to deal with an aggressive child.

It also offers some useful actions and suggestions to help you reduce the aggressive behaviour and bring it under control. This will lead to a much happier and less stressful family life for you.
Aggression is often caused when a child is finding it difficult to express their feelings through words. Frustration builds, sometimes very quickly, and the frustration is let out in the form of being aggressive. It can help you if you can remain calm as a parent and refrain from raising your own voice and shouting. It is true that aggressive behaviour in a child often mimics aggressive behaviour in a parent.
This is not always the case and it may be that if you consider yourself to be a calm, controlled parent then the source of the aggression can be extremely mystifying. This Parenting Tips video may be able to help you identify the source of the aggression or at least some of the triggers. This in turn can help you have a clearer understanding of why the aggression is occurring and what you can do to combat it.
