Understanding ADHD Children And Anger

By on August 26, 2010

ADHD Children And AngerWhen you see your child getting angry, you may get upset or annoyed. But instead of getting annoyed you should find out the reason behind his anger and try to get rid of the root cause of his anger. In many cases children get aggressive or violent due to ADD or ADHD problem. In this case, you need to understand ADHD children and their anger.

Children suffering from ADHD find difficulty in managing their emotions. Their moods change fast and their emotional reactions may get easily aggravated. Children suffering from ADHD are unable to pay attention in their classes, forget their important belongings such as pencil, water bottle, books etc, do not listen to their elders etc.

They dislike doing homework, class-work or any other job which needs mental participation. Due to these factors their classmates and friends make fun of them, which makes them violent and irritated. If your child gets angry, you should deal wisely. You should not scold him; otherwise it can worsen the situation. You should talk to him in affectionate and friendly manner and try to understand his problem.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Most of the children suffering from ADHD also have a condition called ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). This disorder in children also makes them hostile and they may lose their temper. They don’t listen to their elders and argue with them. Many times they intentionally irritate others and for any mistake they blame others. These children behave in resentful ways and get angry soon.


If your child gets angry more often and without any reason, find some suitable outlets for his anger. Give him enough space to play. If your child would get involved in strenuous games his anger would be controlled. Involve him in exercise too. If he doesn’t exercise, you should do it first. Children copy what their elders do and thus your child too will start exercising. Exercises and games are very powerful outlets of anger.

Indoor games are not as effective as outdoor games. So involve your child in skipping, dancing, climbing etc. Do not allow your child to watch TV or play video games too much. Some children have impulse control problems which provoke them to be aggressive when they play video games. You should always be in touch of your doctor.
