There are a number of suggestions you can give your child to help him/her calm down. Children need these "calm down techniques" modeled for them to learn. They aren't born with these techniques built in to their system. Here are a few suggestions, your family may have more to add to the list:
Think of a peaceful place
Run a lap
Listen to music
Hit a pillow
Talk to someone
Sing a song
Once the child chooses his "calm down" technique, encourage him to use the same strategy each time he starts to get angry.
