Wordless Wednesdays: Aggressive Infants

December 1, 2010

5 and 3/4 month old SJ’s handiwork

Drs. James Comer and Alvin Pouissant say “children love to tear up newspapers, magazines, and anything else they can get their hands on…it is really a safe release of aggression…Let them sit on the floor and tear up things you don’t want.” (from Raising Black Children)

    That’s funny! I notice that SJ gets pretty worked up when he’s playing with his toys. After 10-15 minutes, he’ll be sweating and screaming at whatever the toy is. So, I’m trying to catch him before he gets too far gone and let him de-stress with a piece of paper. Sheesh!
