Ep. 75 - Helping Kids Move Beyond Aggression with Tosha Schore


Responding to Aggression with Love and Connection

Do you have an aggressive child that leaves you feeling defeated as a parent constantly?

Or maybe you struggle with a kiddo that goes from super sweet to hulk – rage mode in 2.6 seconds when something triggers him (or her)? 

Rather than adding to the emotions and stress and responding with aggressive outbursts and MORE aggression or force — which is all too common in parenting — today on the show, we’re discussing how to connect with your child and help them move past aggression. 

Our guest on today’s episode is Tosha Schore, an incredibly wise hand-in-hand parenting trainer who is on a mission to create a more peaceful world, one sweet boy at a time, by supporting parents to care for themselves, connect with their boys deeply, set limits lovingly, and play wildly!

I know firsthand that you can often be left with nasty feelings when dealing with an aggressive child, but hang in there families …

Today is all about finding the beautiful soul beneath the aggression of your child. 

You’ll end this episode with the beautiful reminder to focus on the core, the humanity of your child – rather than focusing on the behaviors they are displaying because we know that …

Aggression is almost always fear in disguise. 

Parents, we have been gifted the most amazing opportunity and responsibility to raise up the next generation. Nowadays, I find myself so honored with this responsibility – even in the tiniest teaching moments with my children – no matter how challenging they can be. Trust me, if you’re like “ummmmm, is that even possible?” … I feel you, I know it can feel tough, but you’ll get to that place where you can find the hope in any situation too (I promise). 

It all starts with connection and teaching our beautiful and capable children that emotions are normal and providing them with the right tools to process them. 

Take these tough moments as opportunities to teach and build your child! You’re teaching life-skills one moment, one day, one year at a time … you’re doing an amazing job! 

Remember — behavior is a symptom of feelings and is often a cry for help. When we answer these cries for help with love and connection we provide our children with the opportunity to heal, grow & build STRONG life skills of self-regulation & self-control.
