Aggression grows out of a highly emotional response to a situation in which the aggressor views as unfair. The author provides 4 tips you can use to help stem aggression in your child.

    1-Distract your child by giving him a physical activity. This will redirect his attention and channel his drive to do something physical into a more appropriate behavior.
    2-Get your child to leave the situation. It is hard to be aggressive if your victim is somewhere else.
    3-Coach your child to find another way to deal with his desire for aggression. You can do this with a child as young as 5.
    4-Teach your child to respond verbally. This is really the end goal. You want your child to verbally express his feelings.

This is the first step in conflict resolution.
