    All About Anger for Kids

    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 managing 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
    • Squish Play-Doh
    • Color your feelings
    • Write your feelings in a journal entry, story, or poem
    • Read a quiet book to yourself (When Sophie Gets Angry is a good one!)
    • Positive self-talk (I can control my anger...)
