What are other parents doing when their kids throw aggressive tantrums? Biting others. Kicking others. Hitting others. Scratching others. It's unacceptable.
I have a three year old. He expresses his anger very well. I'm glad for that. He's on track. He's expressing it the only way he knows how. My concern is the reaction I give to him and what I do when he "acts out."
Now, let me explain these acts of aggression. All kids are different and I'm sure some parents have seen worse. But just so that you have an idea. We deal with spitting, kicking, biting, scratching and very lengthy (he doesn't like to give up) tantrums. Lengthy for him can last 20 to 30 minutes.
I've been told to just hold him while he fits (which makes him angrier.) I've been told to just leave him in his room while he cools off (he left a small hole in the door because obviously Spiderman made him angry so he threw him.)
