Anger is a complex emotion and, for many people, a source of shame or guilt if they struggle to control their temper.
When viewed through the lens of mindfulness, anger is just energy that is neither good nor bad. It’s only when we engage with anger — identify with it, fuel it, hold onto it, become consumed by it — that things can become problematic. Meditation, though, can teach us how to change a rash, reactive mindset into a more considered, responsive, and productive one.
Encourage your child to learn meditation and relaxation at an early age.
