Calming the Tempest :Helping the Explosive Child

Resource Type

Video - Parent


Product Description Many adults have faced a child's or teenager's explosiveness, unsure of how to respond. Do I punish him for the outburst? Should I try to be understanding of how she is feeling and ignore the ugly behaviour? In reality, many children who have difficulty managing their anger need to be taught the skills necessary for coping with frustration and situations that demand flexibility. It is the lack of cognitive skills that contributes to the angry outbursts. CALMING THE TEMPEST provides parents, teachers, and caretakers with an awareness and overview of how to teach these skills at home and at school.
