Don’t be afraid to seek help.
Sometimes nothing a father can do makes a difference or his children’s aggression interferes with school or other organized activities and results in physical attacks on children or adults.
It is reccomended that, as a father, you should consult your pediatrician, who may refer you to a child psychologist or psychiatrist. Sometimes an undiagnosed learning disability or behavioral disorder is behind the frustration and anger; sometimes the problem is related to family or emotional difficulties. Treatment may include behavioral therapy, a specialized instructional approach at school, family counseling, or medication.
While you’re at it, don’t neglect to get some help for yourself — individual counseling, a support group, or even regular heart-to-hearts with close friends. Dealing with aggression in a child is unsettling and demands great patience and support. Look after yourself, and you’ll be a source of steady, loving guidance for your child.
