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!
Do you remember how to reframe?

It is not a good idea to contact your coparent when in anger. There are so many things that you can do to improve your mood when feeling angry.

I am sure I can help them feel better, there is plenty to clean at my home.
What are your strategies?
