Attitudes Towards Anger: Let It Fly
Anger Management For Parents
For parents, one of the most important lessons to absorb while raising kids is how to manage their anger response. If anger management isn’t a skill you already have when you become a parent, however, it can be a difficult skill to gain. Core Success, a Portland-based business, is here to help parents learn how to manage their anger.
Learning Your Attitude Towards Anger
Core Success’s Parenting Success series aims to help parents learn to navigate the difficult terrain that is parenting. In our lesson on The ABC’s of Managing Anger, parents learn how to manage their anger by first learning what their attitude towards anger is. This is the first part of this series or the ‘A’ of our ‘ABC’ approach. Previously, we walked about the first two typical attitudes towards anger: to shut it down and to hide it with a smile. Now, we’ll talk about the third attitude towards anger – letting it fly.
Let It Fly
Unlike the previous two attitudes towards anger, those who prefer to “let it fly” don’t try to hide or suppress their anger. Rather, they express their anger freely. Expressing anger freely can be deeply hurtful to those around you. This attitude can also lead to the escalation of problems rather than solving them. Those who let it fly when it comes to anger can learn more healthy ways of coping with and expressing anger.
The first step towards learning successful anger management is to learn your attitude towards anger. Do you shut it down, hide it with a smile, or let it fly? Once you know your attitude towards anger, Core Success will teach you anger management skills that will help you to parent more effectively.
