Behaviors are learned, and aggression is a learned behavior. When children are young, the foundation is set for the ways they will shape their personality and behaviors. Parents and caregivers who use patient, consistent, firm, and loving guidance can learn to shape a child’s ability to cope with his or her anger and aggression.


What do you think about this?  Do you know of any parents whose children are angry and aggressive towards others?  Do you think their parents have a stake in the way they behavior or do you think it’s the environment in which they live?
