Anger Dos and Don'ts Worksheet


Worksheet for children to think about calming strategies that are helpful to use while feeling angry as well as thinking about things that are not helpful to do whilst angry.


Why do you need this?

Anger is a common emotion, but how we express it makes all the difference. This useful worksheet helps children process feelings of anger and frustration in healthy ways. By identifying positive and negative behaviors related to anger, children learn to manage anger and avoid escalating situations.


How and when might you use this?

This worksheet is flexible in its design so that it can be easily adapted across ages and abilities. Counselors could also utilise the worksheet for sessions focused on identification of emotions and anger management. It could also be used by parents as a way to address a child’s emotional outbursts at home.


What’s included?

This worksheet features a simple, layout with designated sections to list “Anger Dos” and “Anger Don’ts." Under Dos, children can be prompted to write constructive, calming strategies like “take deep breaths” and “talk to a friend”. The Don’ts section is for recognising unhealthy responses like “yelling” or “throwing things.” This worksheet can be differentiated by the children using sentences, words or pictures.
