Aggressive play in preschool boys

How do you help your son that plays very aggressively with other children? I think that a lot of times aggression is frustration. And so there might be something that your son is really frustrated about in his play choices with other children. I also find that boys have such a need for physical outlet, and when they don't get that outlet, they can sometimes act aggressive. So it's important to observe your child during the play and try to find out what's making them aggressive. And maybe get them into a class where they can really get a physical outlet or make sure they get a lot of outside time.
