Hello doctor,

My child is 2.7 years old but is very aggressive and does what should not be done. Never listens, shows tantrums a lot but learns things very quickly and speaks bad words where people start to scold him and he does it repeatedly.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Nothing to worry here. Have to be very careful during this phase. This happens with most children, mostly males during this age group. Few tips: Never scold him publicly, never reinforce any instructions repeatedly. If any unwanted action is being performed, like badwords, just ignore it. He will stop doing once you are inattentive to those. Attention seeking behaviors need to be just ignored. Those members at home should also do the same. Love him well. Make him attentive to learning, like books, drawing, innovative toys, etc. Keep away from mobile games, television. Keep outing to gardens, parks, etc., and let him play with fellow kids. Parents need to be very careful to avoid rough behavior, rude words, etc., at home as these will be copied ditto by him, though he never understands the meaning of these. Most of the tantrums are transient, will last only a couple of months if you follow these.
