How Do You Deal with Anger? (10-27-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:   You can deal with anger.

Practice:   Today, think of three times you have been around angry people recently – adults or children.

What was your reaction? Did you ignore it, feel afraid yourself, get angry yourself, or deal with it in some direct way? (Include removing yourself as a direct way.)

Make a three-column list. List the situation, your reaction, and how you felt when you reacted that way.

Did you feel like a child?

Like an adult?

Like a responsible person?

Unsure of yourself?

Proud of yourself?

Make a plan for how you want to handle these situations in the future.


Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, LET’S GO, HUGO!  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
