Show love
Show understanding
Be compassionate
Encourage positive behaviour and attitude

Don’t be the the person in this picture
Don’t raise your child to be the person in this picture
It takes conscious efforts and is certainly more difficult if the child has special needs but it is doable.

N.B If your child is showing early signs of aggressive behaviour please talk to your pediatrician. A lot of conditions such as Conduct Disorder can be managed with early intervention.
