Child play therapy activity to support #anger management in #kids and #teens. Sometimes you just need to scream. That is, appropriately release the emotions building up within you. This art or craft activity is great.
No one intervention fits all. A child therapist needs lots of various #therapy #tools in their inventory.

If you recognise that you, the adult/partner/#parent is easily triggered by situations responding quickly in #anger? If you have wondered: "Why do I do that? It all happens so fast, I can't stop it".  Alistair Moes explains in this video to a group of #men the mysterious process of how anger is triggered and grows. The point is to catch yourself along the process. Alistair suggest when and where in the cycle is the best point to intervene and how. 

To Manage the #MAD-Ness you must be #Aware of it within you.

 Help for Families Canada is here in Edmonton with Anger Management support in family counselling for adults and kids (#playtherapy)

PLAY THERAPY GAME - KIDS' ANGER MANAGEMENT
For #therapy I have created my own #game "Road Safety WARNING Signs" as a #playtherapy #intervention for kids struggling with #anger, #rage and behaviours of yelling, swearing, hitting others, destroying property, etc. The signs are placed on the pretend road "Calm to ...  Drive (Hitting, or whatever is relevant). A toy traveller is selected by the child. When the traveller reaches a warning sign (an indicator that their anger is growing bigger, escalating for grownups) we check in for a cooling strategy.


We aim to find at least one specific cooling strategy for each specific warning signal. The cooling strategy will reroute the travelor along the path back towards CALM HOME. 


Learning #Coping #Skills does not have to be about lecturing and worksheets. #Counselling for the #Angrychild can be FUN at Help for Families Canada.

My young clients who are boys LOVE this game and are often co-creators of the games process and outcomes. Many bring in other props and supports into the game to help the "travellor".

#REVIEW
I am at Edo Japan. I was customer 456. I ordered the 12 pack dynamite rolls expecting to get fresh sushi served to me as at the #Ellerslie store. They suggested I take a prepakaged box fro the fridge. When I stated I wanted fresh food, I don't want it cold. The guy who was the manager simply had me wait 10 minutes and came and gave me a microwaved prepackaged meal.
The server who took my order was 100.
It time that people learn to serve everyone equally without #discrimination

PARENTING TIP - KIDS & SPENDING

Kids love having money. #Money makes them feel so powerful. It's the key to unlock getting many of their desires satisfied (toys, candy, collectibles, etc). It's important to teach kids how to make spending decisions. It's never too early to teach kids about being critical of the "quality" of goods they purchase with their money.
"Look at the material this is made of, is it hard plastic that can last a while or soft plastic that will get crushed soon?"
How interested are you in this item, will you play with it for 2 weeks or 2 months? Do you already have similar items at home you are not playing with?
I know, I have real kids, most of these prompts will seem like a passing of wind while the money is aflame in their pockets. But, you will be surprised one day when you are shopping and your kids says to you,... "Mom, are you sure you want to buy that?". (YES !!!☺ -SCORE).
#Parenting is for the long_term. Keep sowing seeds of good money management principles and you'll save the next generation.
