MP 076 : Anger in Parenting

“Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one” ~ Benjamin Franklin

We thought we were really nice people before we had kids. Our children can sometimes trigger anger in us that we didn’t even realize was there and we can even surprise ourselves with its violence. To overcome unrighteous anger, we need to understand why we get angry (sometimes its not unjustified!) and make a plan for how we are going to deal with it. This can be a difficult issue for many people because it takes humility to admit when we are wrong, and vulnerability to deal with our own brokenness.

  1. Thank you so much Mike and Alicia for these very honest and helpful podcasts. Your words of wisdom are hugely appreciated and make such a great difference to our family life and parenting style. I will often turn this on when i am in peak hour at home with the kids and relisten to one of the podcasts, they are so uplifting. God bless you both!

  2. Thank you for this podcast. I just stumbled upon your podcast and am so grateful! We recently had our second child and have a two-year old. I’ve found our anger at times seems so overboard – especially mine – and your podcast gave me some great realizations on two things: 1. Anger is can become sinful if not put in check 2. Strategies on what to do to help control it. Thank you!
