In this ‘Maggie Moment’ Australia’s “queen of common sense”, parenting author, educator and resilience specialist Maggie Dent talks about anger as an emotion.
Maggie reframes angry children so we can see them as struggling to deal with big, ugly feelings rather than simply being “bad”, “difficult” or “challenging”. She talks about how angry kids need their parents’ help — and looks at what steps parents can take to help their children shift from anger states to being calm.
