The best approach to an angry child is not to get angry with the child, that is, to keep our calmness. Think of it like this, you have a child who screams crying at the top of his lungs, and you get angry with him and start yelling at him. So does this work? No, on the contrary, the child begins to accumulate anger towards the person who does not understand and responds to him with anger, and this accumulated anger turns into anger outbursts over time.
What you’re going to do is let him live his anger, limit his behavior, not his emotion, but how? E.g; We both understand your feelings and thoughts and leave the choice to him, saying, “You don’t want to collect your toys, and you get angry because of that, but you have to collect the toys because when you don’t collect your toys, you choose not to play a new toy.”
Looking at the age and development of the child; We can use reinforcers, offer alternatives, or help the child regulate their emotions by drawing their attention to a different area. With these methods, we can prevent anger attacks by preventing the child’s negative feelings such as not understood, blocked or rejected.
Some kids are more angry, what could that be more about?
The fact that some children are more angry is related to the nervousness of their parents as well. Or, if the child lives in a large family, if one of the other members of that house is angry, the child also develops a nervous structure. For example, a child who sees someone who cannot control his anger and hits the door or throws a remote control to the ground, shows similar reactions when he is angry and develops a thought like this: “So when we get angry, we have to slam doors and throw whatever we have left and right.” With this inference, the child takes the adult as a role model.
