Anger is a natural defence mechanism and it helps us to feel powerful and in control. When your child is angry, it helps to understand that underneath anger is always some kind of vulnerability. It could be fear, shame, embarrassment or even just hurt feelings, but the anger is there to protect us from the wound underneath. By holding our children in a space of love and refusing to be triggered, we help them to move through the fear of feeling these emotions and allows them to feel safe. This should trigger tears and allow the full expression of the emotion underneath the anger, which you will notice will make them instantly soften and is vital for the child to become the fullest expression of themselves and to avoid them having to build a hard shell, or false self (ego) around the inner wound.
