Kid Connection Video Series

About the Kid Connection Video Series:
In The Kid Connection students learn social emotional skills that support their meaningful participation in the classroom, on the playground, and in their lives outside of school. During the school dismissal period The Kid Connection will be offering a series of brief, 5-minute videos for our students to learn and practice social emotional skills at home.

Parent Tips--Dealing with Anger
To help your child learn to deal with anger:

  • Explain to your child that anger is a natural emotion that everyone feels at times.
  • Talk with your child about times you have felt angry and ways deal with your anger productively (don’t do this when you ARE feeling angry).
  • Help your child to identify times he/she has felt angry. How did his/her body feel?
  • Brainstorm strategies your child can use when feeling angry (count to 10, breathe deeply, label his/her emotion, walk away, draw a picture, write in a journal).
