About a year ago we went away on a family holiday to Wales. We were in the car for around 7 hours. That’s right, 7 hours with bored kids and frustrated parents. Usually, when we are going to be in one place for a long time, I take some things for the kids to do but as you can imagine they had exhausted everything I had brought along within the first 4 hours. It was at this time, in desperation, that I decided to take action. So, I started creating little games. You know those kind of I spy games. But I took it further and started to write quizzes. But ones that were relevant to being on a journey. For example, I would tell everyone to look out for a speed sign and as soon as we all heard the speed on the speed sign we would write down all the ways we could think of to make that number. It seems so simple but games like this kept us busy for hours. And the kids loved it. In fact, even I found it fun.
Anger is becoming an increasing menace in today’s society. Not only are adults being affected by it even adolescents and children are being influenced by it too. Luckily, there are expert therapists, doctors and psychologists available who can help children recognize and overcome their anger issues. Also, there are support groups; schools etc which deal specifically with children of different age group and their anger problems. One of the major problems when it comes to kids with anger management issues is that they often do not realise that they have a problem. It is the parents’ duty to make them see that it might be a problem and that their actions born out anger are not accepted. However, you cannot have the same approach for all kids. You need to find the right approach for a kid based on his age. Younger kids respond brilliantly well to worksheets and fun games which serve to teach anger management tricks and tactics. Keep in mind that you must focus on making it interesting for them. Avoid making them seem like tasks, in which case they might lose interest.
