The Angry Child
Who Is The Angry Child?
Who are we referring to when we talk about 'the angry child?' Mostly, we are referring to the frustrated and irritable child. Most parents are unaware though, that angry children can often be anxious children. The interesting thing about human nature is that we can experience the same type of feeling as someone else, like anxiety, but we can react to and express that feeling in a totally different way. So one child could crumple up and cry from anxiety whereas another child could become angry instead!
So our challenge as parents is to recognise that each of our children are unique and can react to the same stimulus in the home in completely different ways!
