Is your child prone to chronic frustration and acting out?

The 4 week Regulating Overload and Rage (ROAR) program helps children aged 8-12 years with strategies to reduce rage and acting out by providing them with practical solutions to everyday situations.

Children tend to express rage when they are overwhelmed and frustrated. Rage can be unpredictable and scary and both the parent and child may be left feeling hopeless and misunderstood.

The ROAR program helps you and your child by teaching emotion regulation strategies and provides practical solutions to everyday situations that lead to rage.
