Physical aggression in toddlers has been thought to be associated with the frustration caused by language problems, but a recent study shows that this isn’t the case. The researchers did find, however, that parental behaviors may influence the development of an association between the two problems during early childhood. Frequent hitting, kicking, and a tendency to bite or push others are examples of physical aggression observed in toddlers.
