It’s perfectly normal for parents to get mad at their children sometimes, but anger can have a negative effect on a child’s development, a CHOC Children’s psychologist tells CHOC Radio.
In podcast No. 21, Dr. Nadia Torres-Eaton offers practical advice for parents to manage their anger:
- how to reduce stressful situations at home;
- what to do if a parent gets close to snapping;
- how to head off potential outbursts; and
- when to seek professional help
