Have your kids ever screamed at you in total, uncontrolled anger?
Pretty much every mom I know has had this experience – some more than others – and still, every time we experience it still feels as raw as the first time it happened.
I recently had a mother pose the situation of her eight-year-old son who was having difficulty with anger. This had moved her to ask for ways to help him. It usually happened when he didn’t get his own way. This would cause him to lose control and even was affecting his ability to make friends.
Reflecting on her question took me back to when my kids were young, remembering how easy it was to respond to such outbursts with my own anger, especially when the outbursts continued.
