Passive Aggressive Behavior in Children March 7, 2017 By Signe Whitson Many of us have a love/hate relationship with all of the useless bits of information that can be found on Facebook. While the heat intensity of a friend’s coffee, the naughtiness of a a neighbor’s pet, or an endless series of alternative facts may not be worthy of our time, we keep scrolling on for the occasional gems of daily life…such as this one. Recently, a mother posted these photos of her attempt at punishing her son for his aggressive behavior toward his sister…and then posted his passive aggressive response (photos posted with permission): https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/passive-aggressive-diaries/201703/passive-aggressive-notes Mom gives 8-year old son a simple writing assignment as a consequence for his aggressive behavior. He is to write “I will not hit or kick my sister” 15 times on a piece of paper: Then, the 8-year old son counters in this most passive-aggressive way: “I will always hit and kick my sister 15 times.” This is a must for inclusion in the LSCI Institute’s next Angry Smile training!
