GIVE YOUR CHILD STRATEGIES FOR DEALING WITH ANGER
Give your child strategies for dealing with anger:
Everyone gets angry. But kids need to learn how to cope with angry feelings. Teach your child that if she feels herself getting angry, if possible, she should leave the person or situation making her upset. Then, she should try to figure out why she is angry. When she is in control again, she should discuss the issue calmly and listen to the other person's point of view.
