Help Someone With Anger Management

By Lauren Michaela

While anger is a normal emotional response to certain situations, anger that is left unchecked can damage relationships and one's personal health. Anger management is the process of controlling the emotional feelings as well as the physical responses to those feelings, like elevated blood pressure and increased adrenaline levels. For some, controlling anger can be as easy as going to another room or taking a deep breath and counting to ten. For others an anger management class may be the answer.

Anger happens to everyone from time to time. A car cuts you off on the way to work, your son mouths off to you for the umpteenth time or a co-worker takes the credit for your idea and work. It's perfectly normal to get mad in these situations, but some folks let that anger take control until it becomes destructive to them and those around them. If you find your anger getting in the way of your life and relationships more often than you'd like, perhaps it is time to consider an adult anger management class.

Anger is one of the ways we express our feelings, and since negative anger is not tolerated in society it is important to learn how to manage and deal with it constructively. Anger management children and adult classes are available readily to help learn how to control these explosive situations in our lives.

Every kid has a temper tantrum now and again. Usually it happens in places like the grocery store when the parent doesn't give the child what they want. They can't have the candy they see displayed in the check out lane and so they go nuts. That's normal. When the kid begins to destroy the candy aisle, however, or begins to hit the parent, that's when the child may need anger management.

Being a teacher is hard enough without having to deal with anger management issues. Teaching children with anger management issues is very difficult because they're constantly acting out and they're very unpredictable. Some teachers even have to worry about young children throwing desks and other objects at them or even coming up to strike them.

You might find yourself being a little more irritable, and you write it off as stress. You don't want to jump to conclusions, but as the weeks and months pass on by, more and more irritates you, and you eventually lash out at everyone and everything. You might throw your phone out the window when you get a call about credit card payments. You might throw a glass at the wall just thinking about a fight at work that day. - 31891
