Anger – How to Help

What to do to help TSK when he gets angry:

Sometimes there isn’t much you can do, especially when your toddler is having a temper tantrum and you can’t explain to him why things need to be the way they are.

  1. The important thing is to be sure the child is safe
  2. When possible, ignore the fit, if the child isn’t hurting self or others
  3. As soon as the child is quiet, praise him or her for “Getting in control”
  4. Pick and choose your “battles” and try to avoid anger issues that are caused because the child is too tired, is hungry, or is overwhelmed.
  5. If your child is inconsolable for over an hour, discuss this with your doctor.
