Frustration and anger can quickly turn into defiance, disrespect, aggression, and temper tantrums if your child does not know how to deal with his emotions. If your child has trouble taming his temper, these strategies can teach him anger management skills:
- Model appropriate anger management skills
The best way to teach your child how to deal with anger is by showing him how you deal with your emotions when you feel angry. If your child watches you lose your temper, he will likely do the same. But, if he sees you cope with your feelings in a gentler way, he will pick up on that too.
- Wait to talk until the meltdown is over
When children are angry, it is not a good time for productive discussions. It is best to save your talks for a time when he is calm. Revisit the incident that made him so mad and ask him to help you understand what was so distasteful that got him so angry. Then, listen with a goal of understanding your child and her perspective. Do not defend or correct.
- Understand your child’s anger
Your child needs to know that you understand how upset he is and why. So when he expresses anger, the best thing you can do is listen and acknowledge. Kids need skills to manage their anger in the moment. When your child is calm, make a list with him of constructive ways to handle emotion and practice them.
- If things do not improve, seek professional help.
A trained professional can rule out any underlying mental health problems and can offer assistance in creating a behavior management plan.
- Talk to your kids about the community violence
When there are news on TV and social media, discuss with your kids. It is important to their social and emotional development.
It is normal for children to struggle to manage their anger at times. But, with your guidance, your child’s skills should improve. If your child is struggling to get his anger under control, or his anger problems seem to be getting worse, seek professional help.
