Parenting is difficult. More often than not, parents always seem to be constantly concerned about their children and their well-being. It is important that parents and children have a transparent relationship to better understand each other.
If parents put up a wall and only treat their children strictly and disciplinary, chances are a child will shy away from them. Parents often hope and pray that their children will not become victims of bullying. While most parents only think about why their child was bullied, they often forget to ask a pertinent question, which is whether their child has bullied someone?
It is of utmost importance that parents do not miss the early signs of aggression in their children. Why is their child behaving in such a special way? The experts have suggested that the children who bully others may also be victims of bullying in the past. The bullies are also often subject to mental and behavioral problems such as anxiety, poor performance, depression and sleeping problems to name a few.
Here are some of the reasons why children resort to aggression and bullying in the first place.
1. It is believed that the bully probably wants to feel safe while maintaining his or her superiority.
2. The bully may feel the need to have full control over a given situation and to get support from others. Bullies often resort to aggression to kill the competition, as they are under constant threat of being challenged.
It is therefore vital that parents are aware of the signs of aggression in their children and start helping their children as soon as they find out. It is advisable not to get hyper and instead of reacting to the situation, they should react. They should not be guided by their emotions, but should come up with logical and rational arguments to help their children correct their behavior.
As a parent, you should also try to create a positive and safe environment for your children at home. Involve them in activities that can help channel their energy in the right direction.
