Managing Anger: A Critical Skill for Parents

I believe that every parent knows in the depths of their hearts and minds that anger doesn’t do anything good to their children. We must certainly all be aware that uncontrollable outbursts do not help in improving the behavior of our kids, but sadly and embarrassingly for most of us there are just moments when we simply lose ourselves.

While others say that it is very inappropriate and very wrong for any mom or dad to display emotions of anger to their children, I think that every parent knows it is unrealistic to stay calm, cool, and collected all the time. Anger is normal, it cannot be suppressed and most importantly, it is okay to be angry. However, it is important that we do not let anger be the pervading emotion in our households.
