DeQuann King is one cute kid. When you see the dimples on the smiling face of this fifth grader who attends the YCAP Academy in East Nashville, you would never know he once had a problem with anger. DeQuann, teachers say --- has made a lot of improvement in knowing how to deal with getting mad and that he hardly ever lets it get out of control anymore. The 10-year-old says that he thinks he started getting mad when his older brother used to pick on him at home. Then he started taking it out on kids at school by getting into fights. Now he counts to ten and thinks of a nice place when he feels angry. He said his teachers taught him how to do this.
