  • Stay calm and control your nerve when your child is showing aggressiveness and throwing tantrums. If you show lots of emotion and lose your temper at that moment, they will go out of control.
  • Take the right action for the aggressive children. Suppose you are in a shopping mall with your children. If your children show stubbornness to buy something, do not give in to their aggressiveness and buy it promptly. Let them understand that their tantrums have gone futile.
  • Reward your children both verbally and materially when they show good behavior, spend their day in a good mood, and do their daily work properly and happily.
  • Arrange a creative outlet for your children that will help them to release their emotions. Punching a pillow, dancing, singing, painting, or simply walking aimlessly, helps a lot to release emotion and bring your children on the right path.
  • Do not hesitate to show your affection and love to your children. Let them understand that you genuinely care and understand their situation. Both younger and older children need your presence when they are emotionally upset. Love them, hug them, and spends adequate time with them.
  • Always feel free to discuss your problems with your children. Seek a solution from them. It will enhance their self-dignity and children with self-dignity hardly throw tantrums. Always discuss your financial status with them so that they will think twice to demand anything from you in the future.
  • In some homes, hitting, slapping, etc. physical punishments are regarded as the only solution to tame aggressive children. But child psychologist says that this is not the right way. Your children will learn from your action that hurting someone physically is right while handling those people whom they do not like. This will make them more aggressive.
  • But, do not hesitate to take the advice of a child psychologist or child psychiatrist when your children’s aggressive behavior goes out of hand.
