Help children understand why they may hit or kick when they feel frustrated or angry.

Children who display aggressive behaviours may be struggling to communicate how they feel. This No Hitting activity explores why your child reacts this way and helps them to think about what they can do when they feel their emotions bubbling over.

We've also included a short, guided calming activity - The Calming Gloves gives your child a new way of channelling overwhelming emotions.
