  • Parent should try to find out what's the reason behind their child's anger, sometimes it's a correctable situation.
  • Parents should stay calm and should not anger back.
  • Time Out, maximum for 5 minutes, is a great strategy.
  • Try to divert your child anger and flip the subject to something else.
  • Maintain open communication with the child.
