    I am thinking that I should get my kids and myself a BOZO the punching clown, with ofcourse letting them know that it's not okay to hit other people, but when you feel upset or angry go hit the punching bag clown. My behavior analyst thinks its a good idea but my mom says she thinks it teaches them aggression. Well, my kids are aggressive and they havent been taught that they just are, I think bozo would be a great de-stresser, aggression reliever for not just them but me too. What do you guys think?

    I think it really depends on the child whether this approach is helpful or not and your own personal philosophy. Personally I'm more along the lines of your mom and would be more apt to offer a variety of physical activities including the punching balloon and would direct them to those in general instead of directing them to the clown, but that's me.
