Anger and aggression can be hard to cope with, both for children themselves and for those around them. Just like for adults, angry behaviour often arises from feeling anxious, sad or frightened. An example of this might be a parent shouting at their child because they ran into the road. Understanding this can help you, as a parent, approach anger in a calmer way yourself although it can be difficult! The videos and top tips below will give you some ideas on how to do this and there are some lovely books to help you talk about anger with your child.
