Truth is that children can be and often are by nature aggressive individuals. If you ever watched a room full of kindergartners let loose to play freely with toys with no adult supervision you would witness varying levels of aggressive behavior.
What parents need to realize is that NOT all discipline is created equal, and that whatever you choose – and whatever belief you have about discipline for your child it needs to be delivered in a positive, loved based way.
Double the trouble, twice the fun, two times the love, I bet you have your hands full…are all the common sayings that a mother hears when she has been blessed with twins.
