Look deeply in your heart and discover what you are really mad about? Rarely is the anger about the present incident, but rather unmet needs from the past. Here are some ideas that have worked for other parents. Try them and see if you can control your anger rather than let your anger control you.

How To Keep Your Cool In A Relationship

1. Ease your tension. Take a walk; listen to music, splash cold water on your face.
2. Earn small rewards when you make the choice not to become angry.
3. Phone a friend. It helps to share your concerns and talk things out.

Your example helps your children learn to handle anger. Be a good role model. How to control your anger when dealing with your children:

1. Object to the behavior if necessary, but separate the “deed from the doer.”
2. Use your kitchen timer for “time out” before disciplining.
3. Remember that everyone makes mistakes, including you and your children.

Count your breaths. Breathe in deep while counting to four. Breathe out while counting to four. Repeat this method 3 times.
