When he gets away from people.
When he clenches his fists and clenches his jaw.
When the palpitations go a thousand an hour.
They want to cry and scream.
Headaches or stomach aches.
How can we help them quantify their anger?
Help them identify which situations generate anger.
Being forced to do something they don’t want to do.
That they do not include them in the groups of friends.
Make fun of them.
Having things taken away or broken.
Not being allowed to do something they want to do.
Beware of technologies!
Don’t pay attention to them.
How can we help them manage that anger?
Teach them to breathe in a relaxed way.
