Lesson 5: Get a Grip
We’ve all witnessed it, and it’s not a pretty sight. Anger is the emotion that gets you into the most trouble with your teachers, your family, your friends, and the police. Yes, it’s normal–but learning how to manage angry feelings is an important part of growing up.
Have you ever seen someone experiencing “road rage?” Scary, huh! Anger comes with frustration. In moderation it’s okay because it warns us that there is something wrong that needs to be addressed. Often, it arises from a sense of injustice. Anger can be a helpful tool in bringing about needed changes when an angry person chooses a constructive action and doesn’t lose control. But it isn’t helpful when the angry person shows poor judgment, loses control, acts with reckless hostility, and places his own or other lives in jeopardy.
