Most families have unofficial family rules about what behaviour is acceptable and what isn’t when it comes to anger. Some families don’t mind doors being slammed and voices being raised while other families have less tolerance for such behaviours.

Create written household rules that outline your expectations.
Anger rules should centre on behaving respectfully toward others.

Address areas such as physical aggression, name-calling, and destruction of property so that your child understands he can’t throw things, break things or lash out verbally or physically when they are mad.
