What are we teaching our children about anger?
There is so much going on in the political landscape of our nation, and in the world at large. I am well aware of the headlines and the wildfire erupting across our country in response to the developments that seem to come at rapid speed. I won’t share my political opinions on my blog, but I do believe we must be responsible and respectful with our voices. It’s imperative we teach our children to manage the powerful emotion of anger in a constructive and productive way.
Last week, my son became involved in a bullying incident on the playground at recess. His experience led me to think about how we as parents can influence our children right now, more than ever.
We must model behavior they can emulate, when it comes to our own responses to the ongoing news and our opinions of what is happening in this conflicting climate we find ourselves in.
No matter your stance on the issues we as a country face today, we all can make a difference in our children’s lives in how we want them to be able to articulate their feelings and interact with others – whether it’s on the playground at school, or voicing our passionate opinions on any platform both online or in our communities. What are we teaching our children about anger?
My article about this topic is over on FORHER.COM. I would love for you to click over there and give it a read HERE. I think this message is critical, especially during such turbulent times. We must raise the next generation to be mindful and sensible, when faced with difficult decisions and erupting emotions.
Let’s all be good role models for them, okay?
They are watching us. They are learning from us.
