However when children fight, the risk is that someone will be hurt.  Fighting and aggression range from arguments, mean comments, refusal to share and common “Rough and Tumble” play to more severe, destructive behavior.  If not dealt with early, fighting and aggression can get worse.  Children may not learn better ways of behaving without help from their parents.
