Most of us feel like we snap at our kids for everything and we get worried because you don’t want to raise an angry child as kids often learn from adults. I came up with few ways to help reduce the snapping.
1. Take a deep breath
This is the number one tip for anyone who wants to know how to stop being the angry mom. Taking a deep breath will not only help calm your nerves but also will give you some time to think about what to do next.
2. Repeat yourself
Repeating yourself will show some seriousness and will also give your child the chance to correct themselves or to hear what they may have misheard and an opportunity to do the right thing.
3.Know your triggers
Learn what spins you out of control. Could be their refusal to listen or them saying no. Once you are able to determine what gets your temper high you will know how to handle the situation better without getting out of control. The more you know what drives you to the edge, the better you can handle it.
4. Keep some slogans
This may sound absurd but memorizing some words can help a lot. Plan ahead what you are going to say to your child when they seem to be getting out of control. Plan what to say and how to say it, so you don’t get into an argument with your kid.
5. Reevaluate the situation
Once you feel calm, take a step back and reevaluate the case. Is this something that is recurring and you might need to seek professional help? Is it just random teenage tantrums?
I hope these tips help to learn how to be calm and give you some anger oping tips with your little ones on how to stop being the angry mom. Find out more tips of When it’s Hard to Love your Child and How to Fix it
