    Perhaps the time taken to repeat these self-instructions serves the purpose--allowing the impulse to fade.

    I really enjoyed this article Jennifer! I was never taught to deal with anger as a child... just to stuff it! I love the opportunity to be able to show my children different alternatives - especially since I have one with quite a temper! I'll post to my facebook page too! :)

    Interesting. I'd like to see it in action!

    Children (with adult supervision) respond well to using candles in the process described above. As a Pagan, I light a green or brown candle when I speak for North, a yellow candle for East, a red or orange candle for south, and a blue candle for west. The flames add to the calming effect -- like a meditation -- it focuses their minds. As an added bonus, the intentional manipulation of objects (the candles) tends to help them focus and calm their bodies.
