This forces them to take sever measures. They tend to beat spank and slap their children left and right for this behavior. Unfortunately, the results are not satisfactory. Beating children has never been a solution.

This will allow your child to know how calm and patient you are. Chances are that the child will start doing this with you and gain control with his anger.

* Do not react:

Try not to react when your child gets angry or aggressive. If you react and yell at the child, the child will get inspired to retaliate to what you say. Staying calm and dealing the situation patiently is the solution.

* Set an example:

If you want your child to leave his aggressive nature and calm down, you need to behave in the same manner. When your child sees you behave gently and in a calm way, he will learn this behavior from you. Remember that your actions are learning models for your child.

* Reward:

Rewarding your child will do more good than punishing him. You need to pamper and reward him for his gentle behavior. This will encourage him more to behave in a manner you want him to.

It is important to praise your child as far as possible for their efforts of behaving gently and coping up with their anger. This will inspire them to control their emotions as far as possible

Following the tips mentioned above will help you to take good control over your child’s aggressive behavior and avoid him getting angry at every instance. Try your best to make a good human out of your child. All the best!
