Disrespectful or aggressive behavior between children can stem from the fact that they don’t know how to express their difficult emotions, such as anger, frustration or impatience. They need to get the message that even when it’s difficult, it’s important to communicate with respect. When a child speaks inappropriately to a brother or sister, we can intervene to show them a better way to communicate, modeling words that will help them express their feelings in a respectful way, without yelling or hurting each other.
