Anger management strategies aren't
just for use in the heat of the moment. Doing meditation or yoga on a regular basis
put you in a calmer, more accepting frame of mind in general. Getting in more exercise
routinely can help you relieve some of your everyday stresses. This can help you be
relaxed when you're with your children. Consider developing a support network of friends
or family who can be a sounding board or give you a break if you need it.
Role modeling self-discipline is a
way to teach your child. Think about your own behavior. Abuse is not just physical.
Words can cause deep wounds and lasting damage. Use your behavior to show children
conflict can be resolved without hitting, yelling, or name-calling.
Think about getting professional
help for anger management if you can't control your anger. Or if you have relationship
problems with your children or grandchildren. Healthcare providers and mental health
professionals can help you learn the skills you need to better communicate with
children. They can also help you change any negative thought patterns.
