Anyone with children knows how hard it can be raising kids. Our annoyance tolerance is constantly challenged every day. kids don't necessarily know they are making us upset (although some do!). Depending on a child's age or developmental stage, they may be doing things inadvertently that develop stress or anger in us, as parents, without meaning to do so.

Most parents know that behavior is learned. Where do we acquire skills? Well, you guessed it, from our own parents. Our kids pick up on how we respond and react to them. We are educating them how to exist in the world under pressure, stress and various situations simply by observing us. Some of this happens without us knowing, while some of it happens without them even knowing it!

We often refer to children having "sponges" for brains. They take in everything, and fast. Language acquisition skills are at the peak between the time we are born and about 8 years of age. This is why children who grow up in multi-lingual environments can acquire several languages at once, but older children or adults are often incapable of doing the same.

Parents who don't get their anger under control can benefit greatly from taking an anger management class specifically developed for parents. Parents who improve their skills in anger management get two benefits. One, they will be better equipped to not behave badly with their children when they do get upset, and two, their children will learn how to better handle their own anger.

Skills specific to teaching parents how to better manage anger can be taught either in a live anger management program or in a anger class just for parents taught online. There is no need to wait, skills for anger reduction can be gained and changes can be made almost immediately. Don't let you or your children suffer, the skills you need are a click away!
