Children being aggressive can be the biggest and most stressful challenge parents face.But there IS a way of responding more effectively AND humanely. It's not easy to manage our responses as a parent/ teacher/ caregiver, but gaining the clarity and confidence about what will work, makes it so much easier for the adult to stay calm and help the child better manage their frustrations. Gaining a clear vision of how these difficult situations could turnaround much quicker is the first step towards developing the necessary skills (for adult and child alike). When you successfully manage difficult situations when your child becomes overwhelmed, this starts to develop an upward spiral of greater confidence and safety for parent and child alike.
Witnessing one's child lashing out physically or verbally (or both) evokes strong thoughts and feelings.
Most parents struggle to find examples from their life where aggression was dealt with effectively and humanely.
|Meeting Aggression with Connection eCourse
This eCourse provides videos, audios and text resources to help you better understand and support your child (or a child in your care) when they are aggressive. Children need a lot of help managing their frustrations and impulses. It's not enough to tell them what they should do and what not to do, they need very specific emotional support, coaching and guidance. Children need to gain more healthy outlets for their frustrations. With our compassionate and skillful support, our children can get better at expressing and resolving frustrations before reaching the point of overwhelm.
