You may feel frightened or frustrated that you can’t control your anger. An important step towards controlling your anger is to understand when it is coming.
 
How does your body feel when you are angry?
 
Can you recognise physical signs? e.g. flushed face, rising heartbeat, clenched fists?

Once you recognise these signs, it might be time to take a break or try a breathing exercise.
 
If you’re going to lose control, explain to your parent/friend/sibling that you’re going to walk away to calm down and come back again in half an hour.

Finding a way to manage and cope with your anger that suits you is important, for example going for a run, listening for music, kicking a football, could all be ways to help the anger cool down in that moment.
