What to Do About Aggressive Behavior in Toddlers?
During the toddler years, the opportunities for learning and independence seem endless. Parents may beam with pride, seeing how their child is adjusting to the world, until the hitting, biting and generally aggressive behavior begins. Aggression in toddlers is a normal part of development and is caused in part because young children do not always have the verbal skills to be able to express themselves. Parents can control the aggressive behavior of their toddlers with firmness and by limiting their child’s outside exposure to aggression.
