Violence Prevention Program May Halt Aggression in Its Tracks

Vital Information:


  • Violence prevention programs for students, parents, and teachers reduce aggressive behavior among grade-school children; the most aggressive kids show the most drastic improvement in aggressive behavior.
  • Parents should praise siblings for settling disputes cooperatively and serve as role models for caring, affectionate behavior.
  • Upset children often need a short break in order to focus on problem-solving.
