Simple Ways to Calm down Your Angry Child


Is your child unable to deal with anger and frustration? Listed below are some simple things that you can follow to help your child calm down.


Children do not have complete control over their senses. Their mind and body is still in the process of development. Although, they understand everything, sometimes it is difficult for them to control certain things. They find it difficult to vent out their emotions. So, it is the responsibility of their parents to deal with them in constructive manner and teach them to differentiate between right and wrong.


Ways to Calm down Angry Children

Here some simple ways to calm down angry and frustrated children.

Show Sympathy

When children are angry, frustrated and upset it is very important to sympathize with them. The things that seem little for you may seem very big for them. Therefore, is necessary to show empathy towards them. Your love can change everything. With love you can easily help your children to calm down and get back to normal very easily.

Give Them Some Space

Sometimes it is important to give some space to children so that they can calm down on their own. But it does not mean that you should leave them in isolation. Just give them a hug and let them get involved in the activity which they like doing. Keep a check on them if they have to get back to normal. If they haven’t got back to normal, take them out for a walk in a park, garden or on the beach.

Let Them Express

If your children are angry about something, do not try to supress their anger. Supressed anger may fuel other negative emotions in your children. So, let your children express their feelings and try to validate them. Teach them some positive ways to express their anger. Talk to them in a cool and calm way to find out what exactly happened. Teach them to analyse the situation and tell them that anger is not a good thing for them. Tell them about the disadvantages of getting angry and the benefits of staying cool and calm always.

Avoid Overreacting

Avoid overreacting if your children are angry. Overreacting can only add fuel to fire. So, do not overreact. Stay as calm as possible. Do not yell or scream at your children when they are angry. Try to transform your children’s anger in to positive reaction. Teach your children to take all the things that come in life positively without getting angry.     

Keep the Eye Contact

Keep the eye contact intact with your children while talking to them. Let them see the concern and love that you have for them.Maintaining an eye contact with children will help them to gain confidence in you. It will encourage them to speak whatever they want to tell you without any hesitation.

Teach Anger Management Techniques

Various anger management techniques can prove very beneficial for helping children to control their anger to a greater extent. Some of these techniques include techniques like holding the fist in such a ways that nails touch the palm, counting till 100, asking for a hug from someone close, observing the own body from head to toe, placing hands in pocket etc.

Anger is the worst enemy of human being. Anger can spoil the lives of many. So, it is necessary to teach children how to have complete control over it. Helping children deal with anger is one of the important life skills that you can teach them. If children learn how to keep control on their anger they can win many battles of life easily. Keeping children away from anger, frustration and stress is very important part of parenting. So, make sure that you do not get into such things when your children are around.
