  • Be a good role model by controlling your own anger.
  • Never spank your child or use any other physical force when he/she gets out of control.
  • Limit your child's viewing of violence in the media, whether on TV, in movies, video or on the Internet.
  • Keep your child healthy, with enough rest and nutritious foods.
  • Learn to recognize signs of stress in your child and help him/her handle stress you can't reduce.
  • Encourage your child to put angry feelings into words rather than into physical actions.
  • Teach your child to respect the feelings of others.
  • Help your child make a list of things to do when angry that won't hurt himself/herself or others.
  • If you blow up at your child, apologize later, after you've calmed down.

If your child has a problem learning to control anger, seek additional help from counselors or social workers at school or in the community.

It's so good to find an organization like Fathers For Equal Rights that has experience going back to 1974!
