MindFEEL Minutes At Home Lesson 8: Mindful Anger

Mindful anger means paying attention to our angry feelings and understanding why we feel that way. It's important for children because it helps them manage their anger in a healthy way. When children are mindful of their anger, they can learn to calm down and think before they act. Feeling angry might make you feel hot, tense, or like you want to shout. By being aware of their anger, children can find better ways to express their feelings, like talking about what upset them or taking deep breaths. This helps them solve problems without hurting others and build better friendships.
