ANGER MANAGEMENT FOR FOUR-YEAR-OLDS; Counselling to Tackle Classroom Tantrums

ANGER MANAGEMENT FOR FOUR-YEAR-OLDS; Counselling to Tackle Classroom Tantrums


Byline: CAROLINE WHEELER

CHILDREN as young as four are being trained in anger management to tackle tantrums in the classroom.

Midland charity Schools Outreach has launched a scheme to help primary school kids keep a lid on their temper.

The youngsters can receive one-to-one counselling as well as being given tips on how to let off steam without disrupting lessons.

The group, based in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, is already working in two Midland schools but is now hoping to extend the project - if it can overcome a cash crisis.

Schools Outreach worker Jenette Jones, 23, is coaching children who have been identified by teachers as being violent, aggressive or unruly.

One-on-one sessions are held and a booklet also helps identify problems contributing to behavioural problems.

'Through talking and by using the booklet, we help children look at what factors trigger their anger,' said Jenette.

'Then we teach them how to deal with it.

'We try to get children to accept a sense of responsibility and understand that they cannot blame anyone else if they explode.

'Another idea is to give them a special classroom pass. When they get angry, they can put it on a teacher's desk and sit outside my office for five minutes while they calm down.

'It stops them from exploding and walking out. So far, it seems to be working.'

Jenette also shows youngsters how to keep calm by deep breathing and regular exercises.

The anger management programme, thought to be the first of its kind in Britain, is just part of the Schools Outreach work.
