I'm a parent of a 5-year-old boy and I'm facing a difficult situation with him. Lately, he has been getting aggressive and hurtful towards other kids, both at home and in his daycare. He hits, kicks and sometimes even bites his playmates. As a parent, it's heartbreaking to see him behave like this and I'm desperate to find ways to handle this situation in a gentle way.
I'm not sure why he's behaving like this, but I suspect it may be due to frustration or jealousy. Regardless of the reason, I want to address this behavior before it escalates and becomes a bigger issue. I don't want my child to be known as the 'bully' in his daycare, and more importantly, I don't want him to cause harm to others.
So, I would really appreciate if you could share your experiences and suggestions on how I can handle this situation in a gentle way. How can I talk to him about why his behavior is not acceptable, and teach him to be kind and respectful towards others? Any tips, advice or resources would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
