  • Aggression in Children Aggression in children is part of their normal pattern of development. Young children can act aggressively when things don't go their way - they lash out, bite, kick, hit and punch - all highly embarrassing to their parents!

    Why are my kids fighting with each other? There are many different reasons - but very often it is boredom that is the main reason. Many parents find that rainy days during the school holidays are when their children fight the most. Kids fighting happens in all families and is another of the delights of raising children!

  • Building Resilience in Children
    How do we go about building resilience in children? Resilience is another way of describing emotional stamina.

This means stretching them at times, encouraging them towards situations that may mean failing at first so that they can search for and find that inner toughness that allows them to bounce back and to try again.
  • Children and Chores
    Children chores, attitude and responsibility is the subject of much debate. Should children do chores? What do you think?
