  • The same as everyone else:

    Breathe
    Take a break
    Step back
    Count to 10
    Re-frame your interpretation of events
    Re-evaluate what the events 'mean'
    Reconnect with your goals in life and your personal values

    Avoid: screaming, venting, punching pillows, shouting --everything that takes the anger out in a physical way amplifies the feelings rather than evaluating whether they're accurate, helpful or even really your own.

  • Depends on what is causing the anger - what the 7 year old is doing during an anger fit.- how your family life, stability is - any new changes. if there are valid reasons for the anger outburst, then you have to recognize that first and then see where to go

  • Just breathe... Sometimes you just need to step away for a minute then deal with it a little better to process. If ur child is angry there's probably some stuff he/she can't control. If so maybe you can let them have a little control in some parts of their life. But sometimes someone is bothering or bullying them and they may lash out at home. A little girl was bullying my daughter and I thought she was just adjusting to her new school or our divorce. But another little girl had a problem with another child and I randomly asked my child if someone was bothering her. she finally confided that a little girl would run around and bug the girls or take their toys etc during recess. So I had a talk with the teacher and I talked with my daughter on how to handle it. Good luck to you!
