Parenting - Great tips and practical solutions to help help an angry child calm down



We’ve all told our kids to calm down.


But have we ever told them how?


I know as a child I got frustrated (didn’t we all) and my parents told me to calm down or chill out. And if I didn’t I was punished. But I was never taught how to calm down. I think that is a maturity thing to be able to understand what we need to “calm down”


As adults we probably take some time to our self, talk it out, do something different, eat a snack, or similar. So what have you done to help teach kids (who are sill immature) what do when they get angry or frustrated?
