Our expert says:
Aggressive type behavior is a normal part of a babies development.Usually born out of frustration as little ones are incapable of expressing themselves verbally. The question is how to react appropriately. It is difficult at such a young age to communicate that aggressive behavior is unacceptable. Most importantly, don't react in anger. Believe it or not, this only reinforces the behavior. The most simple solution is to respond immediately and remove your child from the situation when she reacts in this way no matter how she may protest. And then to reward good behavior by making a fuss of her when she shows gentle behavior towards others.If this doesn't alleviate the issue it will be worth your while to take her to a children's' therapist to investigate any underlying issues that may not be apparent to you.
