Abstract: The importance of the problem presented by the over-aggressive primary pupil can be justified by what the teachers generally talk about after the last school bus leaves, and they can take an easy breath. Almost invariably it is the over-aggressive behaviors of children, especially those who are always hitting and hurting someone else, pushing in line, destroying school materials, bullying, disobeying, quarreling, or having temper tantrums. It is believed that an up-to-date study to find what the authorities have said about the causes of over-aggression in the primary school child will be valuable to the teachers, and also indirectly helpful to the pupils themselves.
