What Size is Your Child’s Anger?
When you have a child with Anger Problems – have them describe the size of their anger.  Is it small, medium, large or super-sized?  Some kids never move beyond “medium” while others go from “small” to “super-sized” in mere seconds.  We can thank temperament for that, in large part.
If you parent a child with a strong temperament and BIG feelings, you are probably no stranger to “large” and “super-sized” displays of anger.
