How to Take the Grrrr Out of Anger

According to the American Psychological Association, anger is a completely normal, healthy human emotion when it is expressed correctly. When anger is not expressed correctly it can become destructive and lead to behavioral problems. According to Mental Health America, it is important to encourage children to talk openly about their feelings and let them know that doing so is a healthy way of expressing anger.
