Help an Angry Child Calm Down

anger management tips for kids

Littlebirdiesecrets says:

1. Blow Bubbles
As adults we often try taking deep breaths to help us calm down in intense situations. But each time I would suggest that my son take a few deep breaths to calm down, he would get even angrier. Our counselor suggested blowing bubbles instead. Not only is a fun, happy activity for children, but the act of blowing air through the bubble wand requires them to breathe deeply. Soon they’ve relaxed and calmed down to a point where they can talk a little more rationally about whatever issue is at hand.

Calculate Expected Height

  • 670px-Grow-Taller-Step-1-Version-4
  • Calculate your projected height. Working in inches or centimeters, you can try to predict your height based on the height of your parents.
    • Add up your mom and dad’s heights (in inches or cm).
    • Add 5 inches (13 cm) if you’re a boy; subtract 5 inches (13 cm) if you’re a girl.
    • Divide by 2.
    • The answer is your predicted height, give or take 4 inches. Note that this isn’t an absolute calculation, but it should be pretty close.

Alphabet Nursery Wall Decor

A cute idea going around is to decorate a wall in your nursery with an alphabet – like pictured below (pics randomly found on google). A friend of mine was invited to a baby shower and the smart party planner asked everyone invited to bring a specific letter.. in my friend’s case, she was asked to bring a ‘U’. I think she is going to take a horseshoe to give the expecting parents for the letter ‘U’. Genius!!

You can find un-decorated letters at your local craft store – or search around for letters in your environment (like the horseshoe!)
