    By being a good example, and that means learning to control your own anger. Also, teaching them how to better handle the situation, not just saying, "don't yell at your sister." That's why time-outs work. Not as a punishment in and of itself, but if a child is really angry, place them in time out to cool down, once they have cooled down, ask them how they could have better handled it. If they don't know, explain to them ways they could have handled it.

    If parents need anger classes, it should happen. In the long run the child will be better off for a number of reasons. Everyone has a little anger venting to do from time to time. Anger is not a bad thing. The bad thing is how it is handled by some people. They use it as an excuse to inflict pain on another person. If a person learns to control his/her own anger then the child will also learn to control its anger. Children are like sponges. Whatever the most influential people in their lives do, so will the child. If the parent knows how to manage anger, then the child will learn from exposure.

    Every time when you fell angry. Just think that your child is already hurted for  doing something wrong. and by getting angry you hurt him more this can have bad impact on child's mental health. and gradually you will create the habit of controlling your anger

    Like anything, teaching related to the hazards of anger should be taught from an early age.  Anger is a monster just like hate and it is all consuming.  Whe we become angry, we lose our edge, our ability to reason and think clearly.  We become instinctive and we react on our emotions rather than our judgement. This leads to ugly situations, bad outcomes, and possibly even civil or criminal violations when things go too far too fast.  Children can be taught this through examples, observations, and discussions of outcome. Obviously, at early ages, the key is to keep it simple yet interesting. Give anger a name, give it a personality, make it a story with anger as the villain. Think like a child and the answer will come to you quickly. WB
