Do you feel angry? I do! Do your children feel angry? There is SO much going on in our world right now that can really produce anger! This message is to help you understand anger a little better as a parent. Once I learned this, I felt better equipped to take on angry behaviors from others. Take a look!

As a parent, I feel a little helpless. Do you feel like you should do something, but don't know what to do? This is a longer video with some ideas.
To summarize, CONNECTION is what we can do. Our children go through a lot of emotions, as do we. CONNECTION is what we can do. Reach out to people. Spend time with your children. Hug them a little bit more because you can.
One of the other pieces of information that sticks out to me from this content is that anger is a secondary emotion. That means when someone is showing anger, it is usually after feeling sad or fearful. That has helped me when dealing with anger from others, especially my own children. They are displaying anger, but feeling sad or scared deep down.
