Make a summary of the passage below, in which you describe reasons why children are aggressive and what should be done to rectify he problem. You summary should not be longer than 100 words. Begin your summary as follows:

The child who is too aggressive may lack two qualities ...

 
The child who is too aggressive is usually revealing tow difficulties. Firstly, far from being too confident, he is actually not confident enough of himself. Secondly, he has not learnt, or is afraid to trust, the acceptable ways of getting what he wants and defending his rights.

Why the child lacks confidence may not be apparent. In a young child, a lack of confidence can be readily understood. He has not yet had enough experience to know what he can do. An older child may be bullying and aggressive because he is too strictly held down at home, or equally because he is too laxly handled and has not been helped to self-control. Too much and too little parental authority often have similar troubling effects on children of different temperaments.

The same may be said of the second difficulty the child reveals by his aggressive behavior. A young child does not yet know that here are better ways than fighting. An older child may not have been given much guidance, or through circumstances he may not have had much experience in getting along with other children. When parents or other adults have not been on hand to teach and show children by their example, or have been too protective of their children in the pre-school years, it may take both time and experience for the children to learn to get along with others, once they are in school and on their own.

The child who is too aggressive needs his confidence build up in good and wholesome ways. His boldness, his energy, his desire to lead and manage others can be directed into useful channels. At home and in school, the aggressive child can be given more responsibility and more praise for his real achievements.

 

Points to include:

* lack of confidence

* too strictly held down or laxly handled

* parents too protective

* lack of trust

* lack of guidance and experience

* give child more responsibility, praise

His parents may be too protective or have not taught him by example. what they should do si to give him more responsibility and praise to build up his confidence. Direct his energy and boldness into useful channels. ( 100 words )
