Week 5

This week we learned about anger and how it develops. As your learned in class, it is important to learn your triggers in order to manage your emotions. However, it is equally imperative to learn what helps you control your anger. I hope you are practicing the skills learned in class!

It is not a good idea to contact your coparent when in anger.

Yes, some people feel better after vacuuming or dusting, weird, I know. I am sure I can help them feel better, there is plenty to clean at my home.

What are your strategies?
