Does your child have a history of biting, kicking, or hitting?
What have you done to help solve the problem?
If you’re having a hard time dealing with an aggressive child at home, you’re not alone! Many toddlers display aggressive behavior around two years old mostly because they’re frustrated. Toddlers have a limited vocabulary to express how they’re feeling, which results in frustration.

How would you like to get a good report from your child’s teacher every day? You would have less frequent trips to the preschool and daycare in Ypsilanti, and have more YOU time!
According to Parents Magazine, “if your child has a tendency toward aggressive behavior, it's up to you to help him develop judgment, self-discipline, and the ability to express his or her feelings in appropriate ways. Here are six ways to do that:
- Set firm consistent limits.
- Help your child find new ways to deal with their anger.
- Instill self-control in your child.
- Avoid encouraging your child to be tough.
- Don’t spank as a form of discipline.
- Control your own temper.”
