Children with dominantly aggressive behavior present many challenging problems to the therapist. These children have been in conflict with all forms of authority. Their relationships with parents and teachers and other children are built around attempts to level the controls others try to exercise. While on the surface these children give the impression of great strength and arrogance and of being afraid of nothing, actually they are, as a rule, children who are quite fearful and uncertain. They are afraid of any yielding since that involves giving in and using the strength of another rather than trying to eliminate the natural authority which is a part of all living. They are afraid of the more gentle, positive type of feeling expression as this involves sharing and being related to another person on a basis of growth rather than on a basis of control.
