Managing Anger

Here are a few strategies to help you calm down or relax.



Take a deep breath, hold it for a few seconds and then release it.  On inhaling, the tummy should expand and not the chest.  Breath in for 7 and out for 11!


Listen to music

It's a great way to relax.  Fast beats can increase the heart rate and induce a feeling of excitement in the child.  Music played for relaxation should be soft.



Go for a walk, skipping in the garden, running up and down the stairs. 



Laughter is the best medicine!  Read a funny story, watch a funny programme or tell some jokes.



Draw a picture of a happy time, or colour a picture in.
