What Makes Me Angry - Parent 2

Foundational

Parents

Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning how to identify what makes them angry. We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! You can use different situations to role play with your student, and include siblings or friends if you want.


Definition: Anger is the feeling people get when something unfair, painful, or bad happens; it is a feeling of displeasure.

Here a just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • You are at the store and you want a new video game. Mom tells you no. How does your body feel? What coping skills could you use?
  • Dad tells you it is time to do your homework and you don’t want to. How does your body feel? What coping skills could you use?
  • You are at baseball practice and you get called out. You don’t think you were out. How does your body feel? What coping skills could you use?
