My child is behaving badly with the other children

My child is behaving badly with the other children

Question:

- My son is 5 years old and he behaves very badly with the children from kindergarten, he beats them, he laughs at them, he always makes them cry. I do not know what else to do, because the educator would not want to receive him at the kindergarten if he still does so. He is not a bad child, otherwise I have no problems with him, at home he is always good and we get along well with him.

Answer:

I would start the answer for you with a question: is kindergarten an exception, or is your child more aggressive in other communities of children (parks or other places where there are many children)?

From what you write I think your little one is not used to the kindergarten company. He does not know exactly how to behave with other children, so it will be your task to teach him "what is good and what is bad" in relation to other children. For starters you can call home various playmates, even from kindergarten, guiding and encouraging the little one to behave "beautiful". If you notice an aggressive behavior on his part you will have to intervene and discourage him to continue it, but not in a sudden, aggressive manner, but by explaining to him calmly the consequences of his actions.

Later you can encourage play with other children and in other locations, such as playgrounds, parks, etc.
Encourage your child's successes correctly and do not overdo the rewards if he or she is doing well with other children; and if he cannot behave in a certain way try to communicate with him, ask him what are the reasons why he cannot behave otherwise. Then give the child a second chance, helping him if needed in the new trial.
Particular attention should also be paid to the activities the child carries out, paying attention to the contents of the television material he is watching, from which the child without too much criticism can copy the behaviors of the characters followed, often with aggressive content. Good luck!
