Dealing with ANGER

Many children (and their parents) tell us they have an ANGER problem – if this is you, I want to tell  you that YOU don’t have an ANGER problem. 

 You have a problem which is causing ANGER in your life!

You know when you get a tummy bug, and you throw up? Throwing up is a symptom that you have a bug in your tummy!

Anger is a symptom that something is wrong.

When you can identify where ANGER is coming from, it will help you to do something about it.

Is there something you can change to stop the feeling behind ANGER?

There are many factors that cause ANGER. Have a think about what may be behind your ANGER. . .

Grief, Frustration, Guilt, Worry, Anxiety, Jealousy, Hurt, Fear, Shame, Loneliness.

l

Write your feelings down in a safe place.

Talk to someone you trust who can help.

Tell the person who has upset you, what you don’t like, and what you need of them.

ANGER RULES

Don’t hurt yourself

Don’t hurt others

Don’t damage property

Do talk about it

When we are angry, chemicals are released in our brains. These chemicals make us want to be active – to fight, or to run away. These chemicals are there to protect us – help us survive harm.

So find something active to do when you feel angry. . . but remember the Anger Rules:

Don’t hurt yourself

Don’t hurt others

Don’t damage property

Do talk about it
