It’s commonly said that parenting is the hardest job in the world and it’s easy to understand why that is. There’s the sleep deprivation, not just when they’re babies, but when they wake in the night and come into your bed, and when they’re sick; there’s the importance of the task to you – you love them so much and are so invested in getting your parenting “right”; there’s the stress, as you juggle your life alongside them, which can feel like you’re spinning plates, and the impact of days off nursery or school because of illness, school holidays etc; there’s the fact that finances are tighter. Tiredness and stress both shorten the fuse. It is no wonder that parents need help with anger management. Learn to - Understand your triggers - Understand your children triggers - Manage difficult behaviour - Fill your own cup - Repair the ruptures in your relationship with your child - Reconnect with your child - Gain emotional intelligence This 8 week course will work on helping yourself, so instead of feeling upset with yourself for the way you’ve behaved, when you manage your anger you’ll be able, instead, to feel pleased with the way you’ve handled the situation. And when we’re feeling good about ourselves, we’re less easily triggered, meaning it’s easier to stop being an angry parent when faced with the next situation. You'll also help your child, The negative impact of a parent having anger issues on a child’s mental health and self-esteem is now well recognised. As you learn, through anger management, to stop the shouting etc your child will reap both short term and long term emotional and mental health benefits.As you know, children learn through how their parents behave. As you manage your stress, put boundaries in place without shouting, deal with challenges without losing your temper etc your child will learn from you. This is obviously important, given that emotional intelligence is now recognised as a better predictor of success than IQ. I imagine you can recognise in your behaviour how your mother or father behaved when they were angry. As you control your temper, you give your children a different model to copy when they have children of their own.
