How to calm a child who is angry — 7 effective tips

Any child can sometimes be difficult to cope with any emotions, but those who have a tendency to get angry – have especially hard. Our parent task — to help them to calm down, but also to teach them how to bring yourself into a state of equilibrium.

Here are tips on how to calm the baby if he gets angry.

1. Sympathy

What seems a nonsense for a child can be very important. If the baby is howling, because I wanted blue socks, and you put him red, instead of the words "who cares?" try not to devalue his experience. If they see value where you do not see, do not tell them that their feelings are wrong.

2. Give space, but don't isolate

Children who tend to be angry, have a propensity to physical aggression. Help them to ease the tension. Special pillow beating or area where you can relax, was a good outlet. The child may not like the isolation from the family or from you when he's upset, and a little bit of space where you are allowed to Express different feelings – something that is necessary to alleviate the situation.

3. Remind them that being angry is normal

Emotions — a normal part of our development and we experience a variety of feelings every day. To be angry and upset, nothing special. If you punish your child — always punish for the behavior, but not for the feeling itself.

4. Do not react too emotionally

Try to keep a calm voice. You know, it's easier said than done. But the more you calm yourself, the easier it will be to calm the baby. And all the screaming and aggression is likely to RUB off on him with greater force.

5. Listen, looking in his eyes

Children need to feel that they are heard, especially when they are upset. Eye contact helps incredibly. Let them talk about what's going on with them — it helps to slowly calm down.
