Kids

Do not teach your children never to be angry; teach them how to be angry. 
-Lyman Abbott

Things you can say to your Kid

“I can see that your brain is fighting itself.”

“What do you need right now to help support you?”

“Your brain may not make this easy for you.”

“What is the size of your problem right now?”

Strategies to try at home

Staying calm will be tricky, but you will be modeling to your child that it is possible to stay calm. 

Anger can be triggered by certain needs like being hungry, tired, sick, or emotions like lonely or anxious.

Anger is a natural emotion. Teach your child what to do when they get angry.
