We must remember that aggression is a sign of fear. Children with trauma histories can easily be overwhelmed by social situations. You need to look past the aggression, see your child as being afraid, and let your heart lead you to connect in love. God’s love is there to comfort in all circumstances, and you must choose to comfort your child in all circumstances. Connecting with your child will help you find peace within your heart. Psalm 119:76 says, “Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promise to your servant.”
