In this episode from Jan 2020 Amy and Margaret discuss the best ways to help our kids (and ourselves) manage our kids' anger.
Fresh 'From the Vault' - it's an episode all about how to help our kids mange their anger.
The best way to handle our children’s anger is to equip them with the tools to handle it themselves. You don’t have to smother children's emotions in order to calm them down; as your kids get older, you really can't. But you don’t need to throw up your hands and accommodate their anger and everything that comes with it, either.
We talk at length in this episode about an excellent book for kids on this topic: “What To Do When Your Temper Flares: A Kid’s Guide To Overcoming Problems With Anger.”by Dawn Huebner. The book is aimed at grade-schoolers, but there’s much to learn in here for kids of all ages (and their parents)!
Whether your kid is 4 or 14, this episode will help you stand outside their storms and get your calm house back a little sooner.
