  • Talk talk talk and let her express herself. Let her know that it's OKAY to be angry - in time, she'll learn with your help to not be angry at you but at the SITUATION - don't direct her anger to a person, but to the fact that it's out of her control. Let her know that you are angry too, and that it's OKAY to be angry. Help her find ways of expressing her anger - does she like to draw? Then help her draw her anger. Does she like to sing? Let her sing her anger. Does she like physical activity? Let her jump and kick her anger out. Give her outlets, but more than anything, help her process by talking to her about it and letting her know that her emotions are OKAY - they are not bad, wrong or anything else. They are what we all experience, just help her learn ways of expressing them and processing them. It might help you too!
