Sometimes the behavior of children can be quite alarming to their parents. It is helpful to remember that a child’s hold on impulse control and morality is in a developmental process. Especially under strong emotional arousal, the hold can slip away. Often in such circumstances problematic behaviors are not deliberate but the result of developmental immaturity. (Cohen, L. Don’t hit your sister. Psychotherapy Networker, 2015, 39(5), 15-17)
