What do I do when my child is agressive at daycare but not at home?

Aggressive Behaviour

If your child acts like an angel at home but is aggressive at daycare or other large group situations, it is most likely because he is overwhelmed by the situation. Talk to your provider and find out how and when the incidents usually occur. Your child may be doing this to secure attention, even negative attention, from his peers and provider. If it is when someone else is being given attention, then I suggest looking for care where the group is smaller and she will receive more one on one attention. Some children simply need this extra attention until they are emotionally ready to interact with larger groups. Children mature emotionally at different rates and it is best to let them progress comfortably.
