Anne Wolski has an interesting take on anger, which she describes in her article:
Change is difficult, especially for children! The “thinking” part of their brains is not completely developed yet and their emotions are immature. Although children are born with distinctive dispositions, they are effected by the emotional environment in which they are raised. Thus, parents are ultimately responsible for two levels of emotional inheritance; one nature, the other, nurture.
More often than not, anger does not in any way contribute to your growth or development. Anger impedes true expression and can be an instrument of destruction if care is not taken. If you want to be someone in life, learn to curb your anger. That can be the beginning of control of your life and eventual success in every of your endeavors.
It goes without saying that having an angry kid is not a good thing. More and more children are dealing with anger issues that are making it hard for them to live a normal and productive life. It is important that any child that goes around angry all of the time, should find the help that is needed for them. With that said, children and anger management can go hand in hand.
You’ve probably heard that anger is a normal emotion. However, as with adults, it can be a a real issue for some children that hold on to it, and for the wrong reasons. If left unattended, child anger is something that can lead to further problems down the road. Determining the source of the child’s anger is one way to begin the process of anger management for children.
Are you one of the many people who walk around with a short circuit, snapping at everyone or anything that doesn’t go your way? Is it happening more and more often? If so, anger management may be something that you might want to look into.
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before, anger is a natural emotion that everyone has. If it’s so natural, why is it so unpredictable? The fact is, yes it is an emotion that is natural, but it’s also very powerful. It can be used to hurt other people, or yourself.
