    All parents get angry at their children. There's nothing wrong with feeling anger; anger is a message. The problem is that we can't hear that message clearly while we're angry. In the heat of the moment, we're in fight, flight or freeze. And when we're in "fight", our child looks like the enemy.

    1. Notice that you're getting annoyed.
    2. Use your inner pause button.
    3. Take Five.
    4. Feel the emotions in your body.
    5. Shift your state.
    6. Try a Do-Over.
    7. Practice, Practice, Practice.

    Children's bad behaviour needs to be controlled though. IMO it's totally fine tomlet your child know you're angry and they did something that was wrong, then take steps to helps them understand why it's wrong so you can help them adjust their bahaviour in the long run.

    I'd love to know if you actually have kids or just like preaching
