Estimated Destination: What Causes Aggressive Behavior and Methods to Protect Our Children (1-2)
One of the memorable problems continuously in the school environment, the problem of the aggressive behavior of some students, where to get that advantage of a certain category of students aggressiveness, and appears in many pictures as examples: a scuffle between students among them; insults exchanged between the students and the attacker on some other; exposure to the teacher or to attack him physically in the body or taking his belongings.
The problem is a serious one to have a role in preventing the function of the educational process in the proper manner, in addition to waste of energy of teacher and other students and therefore a waste of money and thought, here I will try to express the causes of aggression among students and then how to deal with it.
First: The causes of the problem: There are a lot of things that may eventually lead to the emergence of student aggression, and one of these reasons: exposure to bad experiences from previous ones, it may have been a student of abhorrence by the former teacher or hatred of his parents or social rejection by his fellow students or rejected in other areas. All of these things may lead to aggressive student behavior.
The constant repression: He may suffer from the aggressive behavior of repression of severe and persistent in the house by his parents or his elders, or from the school by teachers and administrators, this causes frustration to push the student to mitigation and recreation for himself and empties the energy in the body which appears in the form of aggressive retaliation imposed on him.
Simulation: This is important reason as it often is aggressive behavior motivated simulation. As happened in Egypt when students were asked to stop playing, they rioted because students are becoming copycats. In addition to violent films and serials with separate incidents of crime and need the courage and force in order to reach the goal, and even for the cartoon series being watched eagerly Most of them tell about the conflict and violence, and if we stray from the film and television we may find that sometimes simulation have a father or a brother or a member of the society that are characterized by violence and aggression, and in the end we find that the student reduces these sources, and there is no place for love for him and to show his fighting skills from the school and he will start harming his colleagues and teachers and may hurt himself.
Low self-esteem: he may feel that there are deficiencies in terms of physical, mental or emotional. He may have lost a part of his body, or he may be hearing bad names being him by other students. He may have lost one or both parents and he may feel not being loved by anybody. All of these things can lead in some cases the student being aggressive in dealing with people inside the school and even outside.
Continued frustration and failure: the failure may be a factor, such as student failing more than once in the class under consideration by, or failure in other affairs of life, such as defeat in contests and sports. This can lead to the student to be aggressive in reaction to his failure and frustration.
Support the family of aggression: one of the factors that may have a role in the aggressive student is education where he grew up; there are some families who encourage violence and cruelty in dealing with life and with people. It appears evident in their children where they show the effects of aggression and with their fellow students or teachers.
This is a summary of some of the reasons that may lead to aggression and we notice that intervention more than a destination in the form of aggression may be due to the student himself and may be due to his family and the community he lives in and may be due to the school and its teachers and administrators. In then end we have to find a way on how to deal with this problem.
