Struggling with anger and frustration is something almost everyone faces at one point or another, including our children. It is often difficult for adults to articulate and comprehend why they are angry. For the still-developing minds of children, it can be overwhelming.

Children often express their anger and frustration in the only way they know-how. Perhaps in behaviors such as temper tantrums, tears, and other forms of aggression. Or they may be expressed through less overt conduct such as defiance, withdrawal, and self-isolation.

It can be overwhelming to deal with when your child displays repeated angry and aggressive behaviors. It can be tough to identify and understand the reasons behind a child’s anger. Many children act out because they are in distress, which is their way of communicating their needs.

At Healthy Connections, we can assist your child in learning to identify, understand and express their emotions healthily and communicatively. We can support your child in developing coping skills to enhance emotional regulation and reduce the frequency and severity of angry and defiant-like behaviors.

Our clinicians can assist your child in understanding the reasons for their behavior. We will help support your child’s empowerment and build self-confidence so that your child, without repressing anger, flourishes. We hope to teach every child how powerful their voice can be when shared respectfully and thoughtfully.

We can teach your child practical and alternative coping mechanisms to replace negative behaviors. These skills will benefit your child throughout their lives and help prepare them for what life may throw at them.

We also support you. We are aware of the pivotal role parents have in helping children navigate anger and all emotions. We know how your parental reactions to your children’s anger and emotional states directly correlate to how they express their anger.
