Understanding Anger Difficulties

Anger difficulty issues in children can affect their ability to interact with others and handle daily situations. Early intervention and support are crucial in helping children learn to manage their anger effectively. At Unbound Minds, we offer a range of therapies tailored to meet the unique needs of each child.


Symptoms of Anger Difficulties

Here are some signs that your child may require help:

Difficulty with developing and maintaining relationships with others

  • When a child’s angry behaviour prevents them from developing and maintaining healthy relationships with others, it may be time evaluate the strategies that the child is using to manage their emotions.


  • When a child fails to learn the skills needed to solve problems in an empowered manner, resolve conflict and ask for help, the child may turn to aggression. In this case, the child may need to be taught healthy communication, problem-solving, and conflict-resolution skills to replace their aggressive behaviour.

Low frustration tolerance

  • As kids grow up and mature, they tend to tolerate more frustration in their lives. If a child cannot handle frustration (e.g. throwing a tantrum every time they make a mistake on their homework), they need help building these skills.

Immature behaviour

  • As a child matures, temper tantrums and meltdowns typically tend to decrease. However, if your child’s temper tantrums seem to be ongoing and worsen in frequency and intensity, it might be time to seek help.

Disruption in the family

  • If your child’s angry behaviours disrupt your daily life and you constantly have to give in, it may be time to seek help.
