NEW! FREE! Webinar: What to Do with the Mad You Feel, with Claire Beery of Parents Place Tuesday, March 25, 12:00 (PDT)
It’s a myth that you can be a perfect parent and will always feel love toward your child. The reality is babies cry, you don't get enough sleep, toddlers say "no," kids disobey, and brothers and sisters fight. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, out of control, and, at times, angry. Anger is a normal reaction that can help us understand a situation we’re in, but it can be hard to know how to deal with it so we don’t hurt those we care most about. Explore perspectives on anger and self-control for both yourself and your child and learn ways to respond that leave everyone feeling better.
