    Behavior therapy can help with anger and aggression. She probably has poor emotional regulation and frustration tolerance skills. They can work on these things in occupational therapy as well.

    If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend reading Ross Greene’s book, “The Explosive Child,” and using his approach with both your kids. Implemented correctly and consistently, it will change your lives.

    Here’s a taste of what he offers in the book:
