Angry Student
Hello, I have a student in my class who has trouble regulating emotions. They are super friendly and sweet to classmates, but when their buttons are pushed even slightly, they turn angry and start punching, kicking the wall, or even beginning to hit other students. I have tried helping them practice breathing techniques and also gave him a quiet, safe space for them to settle down. I am running out of options. What suggestions do you have?

Maybe you could create a behavior contract with that student to encourage the student to replace the aggression with a more appropriate behavior and establish a reward they can earn if they behave appropriately for a given time period. Another strategy you could try to help their anger is to teach them to say certain affirmations to calm down, such as "I can feel my anger and still stay in control.", "I will get through this.", and "I am strong. I won't let this get to me".
