The reason why it is a, resemble of instrumental aggression because Ayden showed aggression when I was playing with one of his toys as he would snatch it out of my hand so he could play with it. The second example as I stated in physical development as an example of gross motor skill was when I took away Ayden’s toy he punched in kick me which resembled to the social learning approaches to aggression.

When, it was time for Ayden to pick up his toys. I had told him to help me put his toy away into the toy box and when he put his first toy in the box I had clap and said “good job Ayden”. Ayden then smiled and clap his hands and when he put his second toy in the box he look at me for another praise and when I did it again he smiled and he clap his hands and said “yay”. Then when I put the toy inside the toy box Ayden clap his hands and said “yay”. This is an resemble of prosocial behavior because Ayden received positive behavior and he continue helping me put his toys
