Handling Angry Feelings
Help children understand and cope with big feelings.
- Watch the video and challenge kids to “know and show”: Choose an emotion from the video and ask kids to show it on their faces (happy, sad, angry, scared, excited). Take turns!
- The song gives two ideas for helping with angry feelings: take a deep breath or give yourself a hug. Help kids make a list of other things to do when they’re angry: ask for help, take a walk, belly-breathe, go to a quiet place, and so on.
- Let kids know that every feeling is okay and that all feelings change and pass. It’s okay to just feel angry for a while. Tell them you’re proud of them for knowing their emotions and thinking of new ways to show them.
