The busy commuting lifestyle can be brutal for young parents.  It’s hard enough to find time at home, and especially when children are young, it’s hard to get everything done before bedtime, and everyone out the door in the morning again.  This course has great practical help for parents of children up to age ten, along with worksheets and discussion questions to help you process what you’re learning.

If you’re parenting with a partner, ask them to watch or listen to the same content as you, so you can discuss the question when you’re back in one place.

This course is also great in groups – start by checking it out alone, but then invite someone else or a couple to join  you.  When you’ve been meeting in a group for a little while, register your group here.

Day 37 - Helping our children manage their anger - Older children Ages 5-10

Parenting Children Ages 0-10

• read each child’s way of showing anger
• aim to teach them "expression," rather than aggression or "suppression"
• help them to express anger appropriately (verbally and pleasantly)
• correct rudeness, destructive behavior, swearing, hitting others, etc. - without shutting them down
• allow them to express negative feelings: hurt, sadness, anger, etc.
• not allowing expression or discussion can lead to passive aggressive behavior, i.e; using negative behavior to get back at parents, such as being uncommunicative, refusing to co-operate, or being deliberately annoying
• we need to recognize if we are contributing to the problem and our child’s anger
• don't punish for being immature in expressing negative feelings

For you, what will be hardest about reacting to anger in this way? Why?
