My pre-schooler is very violent. When he gets in a state where there is no way to get through to him. He is possessive with toys, when children go near him he lashes out at them
( hits, punches,chases, pushes, hits of the face, hits on head) as I think he imagines he will take his toys. No is allowed in his space without some sort of repercussion.
I am extra worried as violence runs in our family as both grandfathers and great grand fathers were violent and aggressive men. My son is over a meter tall and 17kg is he not small. Our home is a beautiful peaceful place my hubby and are calm and rarely raise out voices yet it doesn’t not take much for my pre-schoolers aggressive side to emerge many times a day whilst he is a child care, which he attends every day. he is the first one there every morning I need advice, I need a good book with techniques and suggestion and knowledge to help me understand why my child is doing this and what is he hoping to achieve.
At this stage I do not want to seek professional help as I have done so in the past and it’s been a waste of money, everyone happy to chit chat and take my money without revealing any help or tips just telling me to come back again.
