Raising Children to Resist Violence

What You Can Do

Research has shown that violent or aggressive behavior is often learned early in life. However, parents, family members, and others who care for children can help them learn to deal with emotions without using violence. Parents and others can also take steps to reduce or minimize violence. This information is designed to help parents work within the family, school, and community to prevent and reduce youth violence.

This information is a collaborative project of the American Psychological Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Many experts from both of these professional groups contributed to the development of the material presented here.
