Find Out How to Manage Your Autistic Child, Who is Feeling Angry

The feeling of being angry, is a normal emotion for all people. This includes individuals who have autism. The problem of feeling mad or angry, is how to manage this normal emotion that can be out of control, which can make it become abnormal?

Autistic children may show their emotion of being angry in the same way as individuals who do not have the disorder. You as parent(s), or caregivers(s) must teach your child how to manage the emotion of being mad/angry.

It would be an excellent plan for you to teach your child to recognize that he or she can solve the problem of becoming angry and manage the anger. For example,

* When you see or experience your child being upset with anger, tell him or her, to think about their choices they have.

* Tell them they could walk away from the situation.

* They could count to ten.

* Tell them to relax and try to think about what is going on.

* Some feelings of anger indicate harm to the spirit, just as bruises indicate harm to the body. Feelings should not be ignored, but they can be managed and redirected in a healthy way.

* Your child could ask the question "why are you angry at me?"

Therefore, anger is and indicator that brings forth awareness enabling us to recognize the condition that is present. Anger should be dealt with, and managed to keep it from being out of control.

Your child with the disorder of autism can be taught how to choose and identify their choices, when they are being challenged or in an angry state of being provoked. This depends on their age and the level of autism. But, with patience and practice, they can be taught what to do, if they are in an angry situation, and how to relate to it.

* It is wise to tell your child to use good listening skills, to make sure they know what to do.

* Give your child choices as what to do in an angry situation for them to manage it, depending on what caused it.

For example, the following situations could, or might require choices to manage the anger that is displayed.

* If another child called your child a name that was not a "nice" name.

* A sibling or friend of your child broke one his or her toys.

* You as a parent(s), caregiver(s), will not allow your child to attend a special function.

In time, your child with the disorder of autism, will learn, or try to make choices to solve the problem of being angry and it will create a healthy and better environment.
