Abstract The "Research in Practice Series" is a practical, easy-to-read resource, offering effective new approaches for those challenging issues which arise in the care and education of young children. Early Childhood Australia's "Research in Practice Series" is an essential resource for those involved in the early childhood field. Books in this Series focus on the practical, "hands-on" aspects of early childhood--making them ideally suited to early childhood workers and offer something to anyone interested in children's early years. This book discusses research about the development, causes, and implications of aggression in young children. It also lists some ways that adults can help children develop and use approaches other than aggression. The ideas presented may be of value to caregivers and educators of young children, as well as to parents. The book is organized in the following sections: (1) Introduction (What is aggression?; Types of aggression; and Triggers of aggression); (2) Young Children and Development (Early development and the role of adults; The long-term consequences of aggression; The aggressive child; and The receiver of the aggression); (3) What Leads to Aggression? (Childhood or adolescence?; Genetics; Learning aggression by watching others; Learning aggression by reinforcement; Aggression and physical development; Thinking and aggression; Emotions and aggression; The need for routines; and Aggression and the media); (4) Ideas that Can Help (Ways of responding; Helping children to avoid aggression; and Responding to an aggressive act); (5) Adults Are Role Models for Children; and (6) References.
