Anger Management Skill Cards Worksheet
Children often do not understand how to handle their anger in a healthy way. They may act out, shut down, or lash out at others. Anger can be a complicated emotion for children, so ensuring that they understand how to cope with the feeling is important.
Children often need guidance for how to communicate their anger. They also may need guidance on how to control their anger. No child is the same, and each will develop their own strategies for coping.
