On Coping with Anger and Sleeping Away from Home


On Everyday Family this week…

Being away from home can be tough.  While a sleepover at a grandparent’s house can be a great way to increase that bond and ease the transition to sleepovers, it can also require some preparation for kids.  Tips for ensuring a great sleepover here.

Anger is a very normal emotion.  From toddler temper tantrums to, well, adult temper tantrums, people experience anger for a number of reasons.  Teaching our kids to cope with feelings of anger is essential.

Hope you are having a fun and relaxing weekend.

Until next time!
