Anger Management Strategies for Older Kids 

Anger is a feeling we experience when we think that something is wrong, hard or unfair.

If our students don’t know how to manage anger in an appropriate way, it can cause them to behave inappropriately. This is often referred to as an angry ‘outburst’. 

In light of this, it is vital that our children:

  • understand what anger is
  • recognise how anger affects us mentally, physically and behaviourally
  • manage angry feelings using appropriate ‘calm down’ strategies. 

This worksheet has been designed to assist students in managing feelings of anger aroused by a particular situation. Students can use the worksheet to: 

  • identify a situation that is making them angry
  • give their anger a rating from 1-10
  • identify how they responded to the situation
  • identify how they could have handled the situation differently
  • consider how the other person/people involved might be feeling.

Students are also asked to write down three things they can do to calm themselves down when they are feeling angry, two positive self-talk statements they can use to manage negative thoughts and one person they would feel comfortable talking to about the situation.
