Why is my child angry?
There are many reasons for anger in children. When your child is consistently expressing anger you may need to take a step back and evaluate. Are there things that you can do to help?
What are some of the reasons for anger? Some children just have strong temperaments, who from birth express not getting their way with anger. Some children express anger at a lack of parenting plan. Children flourish in an environment of structure and lack of it can cause anger in children. For some changes in the family dynamic can cause anger. For example, maybe mom has had to go back to work because of today’s economy or dad may have to be working longer hours. Maybe it is simply that the family has been too busy as of late or your child is dealing with a difficult solution at school. Take some time to evaluate if your child’s anger may be coming from a situation like this that may simply take some extra parenting TLC. We will be spending the rest of this week discussing children’s anger and what to do with it.
