Parents find it hard to deal with anger in their kids. They do not want to hurt their feeling and emotions. In that confusion they end up in accepting every demand of their kids. It is not necessary that kid is getting angry just to get a new toy. But the anger could be because of any reason.

How to Control Angry Children?

Parents and adults can now control anger in children. With the help of following tips:

  1. Count to 5: If a child gets angry, tell them to count till 5. Make sure they count slowly. Counting till 5 will help them to calm down and the anger will decrease simultaneously.
  2. Blow Into Hands: In aggression the breathing starts increasing and it becomes deep. If the breathing is controlled then the anger gets controlled. Blowing anger into hands means they are blowing anger away. Few times blowing into air will decrease the depth of breath. The child will not be angry anymore.
  3. Make a Fist: The fist automatically appears when in anger. This is the defense mechanism of our body. So tell children to make fist on purpose. Insert as much pressure as they can in making fists. Then after 2-3 seconds release the pressure and open fists. Repeat this exercise a couple of times and the aggression will disappear.
  4. Body Scan: Tell children to do a complete body scan when in anger. Tell them that it is not normal when people get angry. If you get angry then scan your body and feel the difference. If they feel heat or heaviness in head then tell them to calm themselves down. They will  bring themselves back to normal.
  5.  Ask for a Hug: It is the best comforting feeling for anybody. Hug shows compassion and love in every country. Tell children to ask for a hug whenever they get angry. No matter who is in front of them, it may be friend or family member. Hug will bring the coolness back again.
