Anger Management

Expand Image

Learning to manage anger is an important life skill that needs to be taught to and practiced by all students. Discussing and modeling appropriate ways you as parents handle anger is a great way to help kids manage their own anger. There are many ways you can practice managing anger with your child, including:

  • Take a break (moving away from what makes you angry)
  • Do a physical activity (shoot hoops, do jumping jacks, or run the track)
  • Take deep breaths
  • Count to 10
  • Write your feelings in a journal entry, story, or poem
  • Positive self-talk (I can control my anger...)
