I may be saying, “Sometimes I’m angry,” or “I have so many feelings inside and no words for them that I lose control.” What you can do to support me is stop me firmly and gently. Tell me “It’s not OK to hit or bite.” Remind me it hurts. Never bite me back! Show me what I can do when I get angry or frustrated. Help me to name my feelings. Remember, I will need lots of help and time to learn self-control. Another thing to remember is that how you are feeling will affect how I am feeling. The calmer you are, the easier it will be for me to be calm.
