Becoming aggressive or careless can be a concern.
You may not realize that some of the ways your children are changing could indicate a social problem. One shocking sign that parents aren’t ready for is your child becoming very aggressive and careless. That is because they’re undergoing stress, and they’re not equipped to handle it by themselves, so they lash out. They may also be dealing with problems in their home that are coming out in their actions. Anxiety in children can manifest as tantrums, meltdowns and other acts of aggression. These children are trying to find a way to deal with the chaos they feel inside their minds.
The anger may make sense, but that does not excuse them to mistreat those around them. It can be alarming when a small child becomes aggressive, and you may not know how to manage their extreme behavior. Carelessness is a form of lashing out as well, as they’re taking out their frustrations on themselves in the process of feeling better. Exercise patience to get to the root of the problem instead of reacting negatively; you’ll get better results. You need to help them realize that acting aggressive is not the most effective way to communicate. They are capable of making better choices in how they behave.
