What do you DO with the mad that you feel?

It was 1968 when Fred introduced us to his song, “What Do You Do with the Mad that You Feel.” That was over fifty years ago, and the messages of that song are as needed today as ever. 

Fred knew how important it is to help children learn to deal with their angry feelings. But in his song he wasn’t saying, “Don’t be mad.” He was giving us a different message. He was telling us that anger is natural and normal. It’s part of being human.
