As a parent, it’s easy for me to get upset when my children get angry. I want them to control their emotions. I want them to control themselves. But through the years I’ve discovered that one of the best ways to deal with anger is to figure out where it comes from. Once we figure out what thoughts are taking place in our kids’ minds, the better we can help them.
The best place to start is by simply asking the question, “What’s making you angry?” (You might be able to guess what makes them angry, but it’ll be helpful to hear their thoughts.)
