Lets Try this Again – With out the Rain
Everyone gets Angry. Anger is a natural and healthy emotion. It alerts us to deeper feelings; it signals us to put up safer boundaries. Join me this week for a journey of safe-sharing, play acting, and fun games where we will explore the Nature of Anger as well as learn Peace-Building skills.
INCLUDED ON THE JOURNEY, KIDS WILL…
- Make Emotional Body art to determine where our “mads” hide.
- Practice using their VOICE and inner power
- Make Super Cuffs to help visualize how we can armor ourselves from the anger of others.
- Go through meditations to learn how they can relax their body from head to toe (great for bedtime).
- Find new ways to respect their friends and peers (“I” statements, active listening, and gratitude!)
- Make a SuperHero cape (Must bring an Unwanted T-shirt to re-purpose for this one!)
Ignoring or suppressing our anger can cause us to lash out, spill over or erupt on the people who care for us. Getting a grip on your Grumpies is a great way to let your Anger work for you, not against you.
How to GET YOUR MADS OUT
- First check to see if the mads are coming.
- Check your tummy, jaws and your fists.
- Breathe! Blow your mad out.
- Get your control. Feel good about getting your control.
- Stop and think; make a good choice.
- You can’t hurt people just because you are mad.
- People are not to be hurt with your hands, feet or voice.
- Remember to use your firm words, not your fists.
- Use a strong voice and talk your mads out.
- Use statements like, “I feel mad when you ____.”
- Sometimes you need to take time to relax.
- Take yourself off to a safe place and talk to yourself.
- Pat yourself on the back for getting your mad out nicely.
Supplies: one T-shirt per kid wanting a cape, extra scissors that will cut felt
