Like most humans, kids get angry, except for when young children get angry, they don’t always know the right way to let off steam leaving you the parent with a heated child who’s having a wicked temper tantrum. How do you get your kid to express their anger in a positive way? When my ex-husband and I separated, my daughter struggled with letting out her anger simply because she was 3 and so young when we began the divorce process and didn’t (and still doesn’t quite) understand divorce. It’s complicated enough for adults to grieve the end of a marriage, much less a toddler or preschooler. So we sought out a way to help her express and handle her emotions through play therapy. Try teaching your kid these six strategies to blow a gasket without raising an actual ruckus.
