If a child is old enough to talk about their anger problem, encourage them to share their feelings. Asking them to write or draw about their emotions may be able to help disclose their underlying issues, whether anxiety, hurt or sadness.
Advise them to ask for help when they feel threatened or angry. After all they are just “children”, their minds are not equipped to handle big people situations and so they will require a more careful approach.

Anger management does not have to be a form of high strength training.
Anger management can be fun, focused and transformation through art. Sample toddler art for example, make your home an art gallery. Nothing strengthens self-esteem rather than see one’s creations displayed and appreciated.
Give praise and encouragement openly and often. You are giving the energetic be a way of playing the excess energy. Positive reinforcement is the best way to keep things going. All creation, even if it is half done, is worthy of positive comment. The child is making something out of nothing and that in itself is remarkable.
