Aggression issues

We already touched on the research showing that moms tend to focus on nurturing while it’s the dads who do the playing. However, there is a particular type of play that fathers engage in with their sons: roughhousing. Roughhousing, according to the research, helps boys learn from a young age how to release aggression in a healthy, productive manner, while also understanding boundaries when it comes to aggression. Without learning that at a young age, a boy may grow into a man who has rage issues, or who struggles to know how to release his aggression in a way that isn’t destructive.
