Anger management is not always easy. Anger management is important when a person has anger problems to try to talk to the person. Avoid loosing your temper yourself since this will only cause another problem.
A person with anger puts others in danger when he has anger issues and if we loose our control then we have a seriously chaotic situation that could lead to violence.
Child Anger Management
If you have a child that has anger issues then to manage anger in your child you need to keep the chain of communication with the child open. Sit with your child and talk with him or her attempting to find out the reason for the frustration in child.
Do not wait until the child is out of control and then try to talk. Wait until the child cools down and then ask him or her reason for the anger. You might want to search your own area of contact with the child to see if anything you said or did made the child angry.
This will help you to avoid this the next time when you and your child are together. My child had anger problems and he was told to take a walk or a cool down period before tackling the anger issues. Of course, my child had mental illnesses underlying the anger and this contributed to the problems we undergo.
Anger Management â€“ Self-Talk
Self-talk and talking is another anger management technique, which will always helpful when we are tackling with anger. Try to find the source of the anger by talking through the problem.
Anger Management – Count 10 To 15
Some recommend the angered person to count up to 10 or 15. However, this does not always work, if there is an underlying cause. The best solution is finding what works for you.
Anger Management â€“ Child Play Games
It is also recommended that the child play a game, such as Nintendo, PlayStation or other game console and play until your anger ceases. Again, this works for some of us, but not all of us.

Another great anger management technique is if possible, drawing the source of your anger. Writing, self-talk, talk, art, and music have been proven to be more effective verses the other types of anger management techniques offered.
Anger Management – Exercise
Exercise is also one of the great anger management techniques. Running around the block, going for a walk, or riding a bike, has proven helpful for eliminating anger for some individuals.
Anger Management – Dance
Another anger management technique is dance. Dance is a natural source of getting in touch with your feeling. If you ever wondered what the term sheâ€™s got soul means, well when you dance, feel the music and hold on to the steps of the beat then you got soul.
There is nothing like the boogie fever as it relieves stress, anxiety, tension, and makes your body and mind feel good since you did something productive. If you must vent your frustration on something, get a punching bad, or else beat the heck out of your pillow.
Kick Boxing, Boxing, or Wrestling can help you in controlling anger as it is said to teach the person control. Karate is another recommended source for helping a person deal with anger. The problem is that we must get the other person to cooperate, when we are dealing with anger.

Even though, crying is not suitable anger management technique, but it is good for relieving stress and anger for some people. My children were raised understanding that it is ok to cry regardless of gender.

It is important to address your feelings and emotions when they arise, as emotions when suppressed will create more problems for the people in society. Dealing with the problems when they arise is the best solution for dealing with emotions. Anger management is not always easy, but it is possible.
