Hi Ammum - I'm no expert but didn't want you to go unanswered.

My DS1 (now nearly 6) often gets really angry. I used to try to get him to stop being angry but now say to him that it is OK to be angry (after all we get angry don't we - why shouldn't a child) but I try to give him appropriate ways of dealing with it e.g. stamping his feet or shouting. I think boys find it easier to expel emotions physically so I find this a better way then him hitting me or his younger brother.

Punching a pillow or cushion is another good one as again it releases the agression without hurting anyone. DS2 is much happier with this arrangement grin. Hope it helps.
