Aggressive behaviour of parents with their children is not a recent phenomenon in the world, as is evidenced by historical and scientific sources. For many years, the status of children in the society was dependent on the absolute authority of adults and their will to act appropriately; the behaviour was not questioned in the society. The modern society sees the status of a child changing – now, an aggressive and harmful behaviour, previously considered as a matter of fact and acceptable, is now questioned and regarded as violent, brutal, infringing the rights of children, incompatible with the interests of a child etc. Essential changes related to considering and estimation of the child‘s status in the family and society began with the United Nations adopting the Convention on the Rights of the Child to which almost all countries of the world have acceded, thereby recognising the need of protection of the child‘s rights.
