I have no particular issues, just normal boys that sometimes shout when things dont get their way.
What is the best way to handle this? How do I show them the way it is done? They are 6, 4, 2. thanks

There's a book - The Volcano in my Tummy. Looks good, and I have heard its easy to use with children, although haven't tried it myself.

if DD is angry, I tell her to take a deep breath / stamp her foot / go to her room to calm down. All those reactions are allowed. Shouting / hitting her sister is not. For little ones (2 years), naming the motion and reason can help too.
