Famous singer says anger management can help keep kids safe
If you are growing increasingly concerned about violence in this country, you’re not alone. Everyday, it seems like some new act of brutality takes place somewhere in the United States, whether it’s in a dark alley, a shopping center or even a school. And, with each new report, parents everywhere worry just how they can keep their children out of harm’s way.
In the aftermath of such tragic events as the shootings in Aurora, Colorado, and Newtown, Connecticut, Time Inc. launched an online campaign – 1simplechange.com – to encourage parents everywhere to share their views on how to keep such horrific events from repeating themselves.
Recently, famed country singer Jewel submitted her idea for a simple change that could make the world safer for children everywhere: anger management classes.
“I feel that learning how to problem solve and learning emotional skills is critical,” she wrote on the website. “I hope to help teach my son to deal with frustration, and learn how to problem-solve in healthy ways, so that by the time he’s older and not under my wing, he will have some skills.”
Being able to maintain your composure in the face of intense pressure or frustration is an essential life skill that will benefit an individual in their personal and professional life. However, if you think your child or teenager might have an issue with anger management, you may not be sure how to address the issue.
At Conflict Coaching & Consulting, our online teen anger management classes have been professionally developed to provide your teen with the techniques he or she needs to identify their negative emotions and address them in a calm and rational way.
