Day 38 - Teaching our children to manage their anger

1. Recognize it's a long process

• typically it takes at least eighteen years!
• help them to realize that talking through an issue that has upset them is more productive than behaving badly

2, Try to find the root cause of the anger
• listen to your child
• HALT - are they Hungry, Anxious, Lonely or Tired?
• may not be easy to work out root cause - they may not know
• if we don't find the root cause, they can become angrier or suppress their emotions, leading to rebellion later
• create environment of openness and honesty to encourage communication
