How to control the growing aggressive behavior in the first place?

Two things:

  • We need to understand the core problem of the child who shows such behavior.
  • We must avoid physical punishment and adopt a warm, supportive, assertive parenting style.

The curriculum must be based on the needs of the child that must develop him physically and mentally.

A Sound Body = A Sound Mind.

Our education system must not only be inventive but it also must be based upon discovery. The potential is not to create, that is there within the child. The potential is to be discovered and developed. The character must be so strong so that the hurdles of modernity may not disturb him. His vision must be opened and clear. Basic values must be inculcated among the children. This will connect the child to the family and society.
