Options and strategies help children deal with anger
Feeling angry is normal. But children need to learn they have choices about how to express their anger. Give your child options: If he’s being teased, for example, he could walk away or tell an adult. Anger is a physical and emotional reaction. Teach your child these strategies for coping : 1. Take deep breaths. 2. Think for a minute before saying anything. 3. Get away from the situation until feelings are under control.
