Anger Management for Parents

All parents feel angry at times.  It is how we respond to our children when we are in conflict, experiencing stressful situations that make all the difference.  Identify your triggers, learn to calm yourself, problem-solve conflicts and generally become a more capable and calm parent. For parents of children birth to 10 years of age.

Tip of the Day
Practise enjoying the moment. We tend to live in the future, planning and thinking "When the baby's asleep, I'll get some work done", "When he learns to talk, we'll have so much fun." Train yourself to live in the present. This wonderful time will pass very quickly and will never come again.
