In the book, WIT AND WISDOM FROM THE PEANUT BUTTER GANG, H. Jackson Brown, Jr. wrote about some children who offer advice on spotting and dealing with anger:

Morgan, age 11 says, "When your mom is mad at your dad, don't let her brush your hair." Lezlee, age 11 advises, "When your mother is mad and asks you, 'Do I look stupid?' It's best not to answer her." Children become quite adept at spotting the signs of anger because so often they become the unsuspecting target of adult anger.

Martin Luther King admonished his people, "to avoid not only violence of deed but violence of spirit." That's sound advice. If we will take charge of our inner emotions, our outer actions will take care of themselves.
