Anger Management for Children: How to Most Effectively Help Children with Anger Issue


Let your child know that it’s OK to be angry.

Encourage open lines of communication. Ask him what is wrong and encourage him to talk about it.

Tell your child that while it’s OK to be angry, it’s not OK to hurt someone (physically or emotionally) or break things because of it.

Talk to your child about his anger warning signs (clenched fists, face getting flushed, breathing faster, etc.). Let him know that these are signs it’s time to calm down and release.

Give your child tools to help him feel calm, including releasing with The Sedona Method, taking deep, slow breaths, counting to 10 and using positive statements like ‘It’s OK, I can get through this.’

Help your child to learn problem-solving skills. This will help him to come up with alternatives to anger or violence in tough situations.
