In this video excerpt, Daniel Tiger and his friends sing a song about conquering anger by counting to four. They find that getting mad when things go wrong is normal, but when you get mad, stop, count to four, and then you'll be able to reflect and come up with a solution to the problem that makes you happier. In the related activity, use music and movement to help children practice slowing down and controlling their actions. Before children can think clearly enough to deal constructively with their angry feelings, they need self-control in order to slow down and calm down.
