Helping Children Manage Anger

You’ve probably heard of fight, flight or freeze—the brain’s primal response to threat that floods our system with a cocktail of chemicals to help us react and keep safe. More recently ‘flop’ and ‘be-friend’ have been added to this list. Now, that’s a tidy little bunch of ‘f’ words for you!

And here is one more to add to the collection: FURIOUS.

For many children (and adults too) ‘fight’ is the go-to response and anger is the emotion that is automatically triggered. The root cause of anger is often frustrated desire.  A child who has not yet learnt to self-regulate can go from zero to one hundred in a split second when something or someone gets in the way of what they want, resulting in an outburst of full-blown fury.

Your Road to Learning

Some people prefer to learn in a quiet place, some people prefer to listen to music while they learn. Some people like to learn in small bitesize chunks and some people like to swallow everything in one mouthful. Others love group sessions with a facilitator, where all are located in the one room and you move forward together by learning together.

So what's the best learning experience for you?

New Early Learning Landing Page

It is truly extraordinary when you think of the growth and learning that takes place in the first few years of a person’s life. A baby explores the joys of movement by becoming curious about the world around them. A young child begins to develop language and experience the complexities of relationships, culture and identity. They experience the tumultuous world of emotions and body signals and begin learning patterns of response to them.

St Luke's Innovative Resources has been named as provider under new 'School Readiness' funding, a new initiative of the Victorian State Department of Education and Training, designed to help children achieve their best at kindergarten.

Our products and training have been identified for inclusion on the Department's menu. This means that we have been through a formal validation process that analysed our alignment to the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework, considered in the light of their evidence base.
Visit our new Early Learning page created especially to help identify the resources we have found most useful when working with young children.
