Use the pictures as story starters. What made these people feel this way? What makes you feel these feelings? This helps children understand feelings, and it’s fun, too. Anger Cans and Can’t When you are angry you cannot Hit, bite, or hurt someone Break or destroy something Hurt an animal Hurt your own body Use rude or insulting words When you are angry you can Play with play dough, sand, or water Tell the people involved how you feel Draw or paint a picture, write a story Talk things over Ask for help Listen to music Go someplace quiet to cool down Rip up paper Parent Count May 2004 Reprinted with permission from: The Penn State Better Kid Care Program <http://extension.psu.edu/youth/betterkidcare>, Penn State University, Claudia C.
