Advocacy and Disclaimer

 

Advocacy statement

Inappropriate discipline and early childhood aggression are two of the strongest predictors of violence later in life. No person deserves to lead a violent life because his or her caregiver did not have the skill set to respond appropriately to hurtful behavior in that person's early years. To prevent violence in our society, everyone who cares for young children should know appropriate ways to respond when they see one young child hurt another.

Disclaimer

This program contains general recommendations for managing aggression in young children. Some children’s behavior may warrant approaches that are different than those described in this program. This program should not be used as a substitute for consultation with a professional. See your health care provider or other appropriate counselor if you have any questions about your child’s behavior.
