Dealing with angry meltdowns can be one of the most difficult situations for parents. This strategy chart allows parents to communicate with their children and model these techniques that help us go from anger to calm.
To maximise the effectiveness of this resource, parents should talk through these techniques with their child and even run through each of them together. The idea is that when children do feel anger, they self-regulate using the techniques described in this infographic.
Parents may also wish to model each of the techniques so that their children can see what each of these look like and how they can be used in real-life.
It is completely fine to feel angry, but it’s important that we understand how to regulate that anger once it does occur.
