Disregard False, Unhelpful Beliefs About Anger
Are you ready to learn anger management for the sake of better parenting? Learn with Core Success. Core Success is a Portland-based business that offers a Parenting Success series to help parents learn how to navigate the difficult field that is parenting. One of the subjects we cover is anger management in our The ABC’s of Managing Anger series.
Common Beliefs That Don’t Assist With Anger Management
First, parents must recognize any beliefs they have that perpetuate the anger response. The most common beliefs are anger equals power, it just makes me so angry, and anger is the best motivator. Do you think your anger gives you power? Do you allow your fears to sweep you up in an anger response you feel you can’t control? Do you think your anger will motivate your children to behave? These are beliefs that ultimately aren’t helpful when parenting and learning to manage anger. In their place, Core Success encourages parents to take on more empowering beliefs.
Empowering Belief #1:
Clarity and calm allow self-control.
If you have the clarity and calmness to understand what you want to say or do, or how to get what you want, then anger would not be the response that you are driven to. By focusing on remaining calm and clear, you can seek out solutions more easily than you would be able to if you were driven by anger.
