This fan is a useful tool to support children and give them options to behave appropriately when they feel angry. If we constantly say ‘no’ or stop a child from displaying how they feel then we are putting a lid on top of a pressure cooker and eventually children may want to explode with poor or inappropriate behaviour. This fan helps children to know what they can do when they feel angry. It is tool to help them work through and focus on the suggestions that most suit the child’s environment or setting.
Suggestions to get rid of the feeling of being angry include: shaking your body, jumping up and down, stamping on the floor to stamp out the anger, run off the anger, blow out the anger, tear paper to get rid of the anger, pound a soft cushion or play dough, scribble out the anger or draw an angry picture.
Simple suggestions make a difference in the long term behaviour, by allowing anger to be released in a safe environment rather than building up to be released later on.
All fans are available with a popper, keyring or on a lanyard.
Fans are double laminated for extra strength and are 125mm tall by 45mm at their widest point.
