Anger Management

Anger Management

Anger can be perfectly normal, and healthy for children if it is expressed appropriately. By acknowledging students’ feelings and letting them know that they are valid and that you understand, you help them to work through problems. Students should know that being angry is okay, but that there is an appropriate way to deal with their feelings. Anger can be expressed in a calm and respectful manner.

Recognize the difference between anger and aggression. Although the two are similar and may occur together, anger is an emotion that may result from frustration, low self-esteem or disappointment; whereas aggression is a negative act intended to hurt someone or something. Negative consequences should focus on aggression, and not necessarily anger.

Try to prevent conditions in the classroom that are likely to induce frustration and or anger. For example, be sure that tasks and expectations are appropriate for the student’s age and abilities.

Be proactive. Before an angry outburst erupts, talk with your class about acceptable and unacceptable ways of handling frustrating situations.
