Maggie Dent on how parents can deal with anger

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Anger is a big, spontaneous emotion.

Sometimes, when your child has just kicked you in the stomach as you try to put them in the car seat, or they’re having a tantrum and throwing books around the room, it can feel like you have no control over it.

And so you yell.

And then maybe, you feel terrible.

Parenting educator and host of the Parental as Anything podcast, Maggie Dent says that it’s human to feel anger.

But it’s what we do with it as adults, and the carers of small children, that really counts.

Maggie explains how we can be calmer at home, and ways of understanding why we feel angry in the first place.
