Child Development Thoughts
You can help your child learn to handle big emotions like anger, frustration, and disappointment. Work on increasing his self-control with these strategies to help him think before he acts: Talk it out (give your child words to use), Think Ahead (prepare for situations), and Calm Down (when he starts to get upset, help him find ways to keep his cool. For instance, he might take a deep breath, count of five, or draw a picture of how he is feeling). Once your child gets used to these techniques, he will be able to do them without a reminder.
