Why So Angry?

Published by kappello on

When kids get angry, throw tantrums, the automatic sometimes knee jerk reaction is anger right back at them, and frustration, which is understandable, especially if they are young, are not able to really communicate what is going on internally or feel they can’t do so.  As a parent you don’t want an out of control angry banshee running around, but on the other hand, if you being angry right back at them doesn’t really stop the cycle of angry outbursts, well maybe it’s time to figure out what is going and deal with the root issue.  It may not be an easy fix, but if we don’t deal with the root issue of what is causing the child to act out over then nothing will really be effective in terms of parenting.  I hope when children get angry and act out, especially if there is a pattern, we will consider this list and get to the root, so we can address that root issue.
