Never allow anyone to be hurt; everyone should always feel safe from physical harm. Do not allow any kind of physical aggression (hitting, kicking, biting). Teach the child to express angry feelings by using words or drawing pictures. Your ultimate goal is to teach self control. (Remember that you must set an example. If a child sees an adult using physical means to handle problems, it reinforces the idea that hitting is indeed okay.)
