Aggressive Behavior in Nursery School Children: A Case Study of Five Boys Referred to the Hudson Guild Counseling Service, 1948-1952
In our society it is an accepted fact that a normal family consists of a mother, father and a child. The degree of equilibrium which exists in the family is dependent upon all the individuals involved. The feelings and attitudes of one individual influence the feelings and attitudes of the others; thus forming a continuous chain of interaction which makes for either love or hate, for adjustment or mal-adjustment. It has long been recognized that the parents play a very important and responsible role in the development and formation of the personality and character of the child. The fundamental relations between the parents and the child set the stage for the satisfactory or unsatisfactory adjustment of the child in later life. Many disturbances in the child’s personality result from the failure of the parents to discharge their role adequately.
