Great child anger management

This is a fun educational game to encourage the development of appropriate reactions to anger. It also helps develop the ability to control anger and makes your child understand the consequences of the different reactions of anger. Perfect for boys and girls age 6 and up.

Through a comparison of the behavior of animals when they get angry (in this case a turtle, a lion and an owl), and the consequences of these reactions, kids can get a reflection on how each acts when angry. The ultimate goal is to self-manage anger and develop more constructive and positive forms of expression thereof.


Try to explain to your children the following: We all get angry, that’s normal, but rarely think about how we behave when we are angry. Let’s see how animals get angry, and understand their different reactions to anger:

#1 Do you know what the turtle does when it is angry? It hides inside its shell, says nothing, and does nothing.
#2 You know what the lion does when it gets angry? The lion roars, and does attack others.
#3 And finally the owl. The owl when angry moves away, it perches on a branch of a tree, watching and thinking. And when it has relaxed and has thought the situation over, it tries to work things out.

Explain that when we get angry we can react in different ways, as happens to animals too. It is important to understand that it is not good to hide our anger, nor attack others. Best way is to reflect and try to work things out like the owl does, we will feel better and others will feel better too.

Choosing fun activities which teach healthy interaction and decision making might be good for anger management in children. Teaching them to take turns and helping them to learn that they can’t always be the best or the winner would definitely make a difference when confrontational situations arise. Create something together with your children, actively participate in their games.
