In the beginning, babies will only spend a few minutes doing this but after some time, she’ll be able to hold her head up on her ...

Taming Your Aggressive Child

Tips for Dealing With an Aggressive Child Aggressive behavior can occur at any age. When you find that your child is exhibiting excessive aggressive behavior, you need to employ strategies to turn it around. Handling an aggressive child depends largely on the age group. Young children are prone to this behavior naturally as their little minds developed. 1. Consistency is key When dealing with aggressive small children, consistency is the key to success. Changing your response to aggression each time doesn’t send the right message to your child. For example, if your child has been making a habit of hitting his siblings, you must tell him in a calm voice using the same words every time that it’s not acceptable and he will need to take a timeout. 2. Lay down the law firmly You may find yourse...
