Anger Management can we do this in gradeschool?

I took an online psychology course a couple of years ago and the group I was in did a project on school shootings. We went back to the 60’s and heard about people who were emotionally abused all their lives who then went nuts and went on a shooting spree. I think now we hear so much of  that same story that it is not news anymore.

I am a teacher and I see these kids growing up trying to stuff their anger while I am trying to process mine. I wonder what life would have been like if I was taught how to deal with anger before others taught me how. Which makes me think why don’t we start teaching our kids that anger is an emotion that is not an enemy and to fight but an enemy to embrace.

I am at a stage in my life where I want to write about things that inspire me. One of those things is a recent Introduction to Art Therapy class I took at my college.
