Good morning all!

This week I will be posting some tips if your child gets frustrated with day to day situations,

The world is a tough place and it is easy to get frustrated so let’s see how we can combat it!

Differentiate Between Feelings and Behaviour

Anger is a normal, healthy emotion. But many kids struggle to understand the difference between angry feelings and aggressive behaviour.

Teach your child to label their feelings, so they can verbalize feelings of anger, frustration, and disappointment.

Say, “It’s OK to feel angry but it’s not OK to hit.” Help them see that they are in control of their actions when they feel angry.

Sometimes, aggressive behaviour stems from a variety of uncomfortable feelings, like sadness or embarrassment. Talk about feelings often and over time, your child will learn to recognize their feelings better.
