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.
