Aggression, anger, yelling… Abigail and Elle talk about the times when parenting their kids made them crazy angry – and there are lots!
They go back to the very start of early years parenting and what set them off, right through to the cocktail of feelings that has emerged parenting tweens.
And they ask, what happens when you find yourself afraid of your feelings of rage, becoming the parent you never wanted to be?
How Can You Keep Calm When Your Kids Make You Crazy Angry
On the podcast this week, the two moms talk about the strategies they used to find calm and repair when anger set in.
- Tapping out
- Walking away
- Unwiring destructive thoughts
- Marking our boundaries as parents
- Deeper work: Where and how to get support with others
- The power of using “battery out,” “mommy puddles,” and “safe words” when we are angry with children.
