When it’s your lid that’s about to pop, what do you do? It’s the same ol’ “Bad Mom” conversation again… am I a terrible mom because I just screamed at my kids? What am I teaching my kids? On the other hand, what am I teaching my kids if I pretend that I’m NEVER angry and never lose my cool? I happen to think that when we don’t express our emotions or overly judge our emotions, we are teaching our kids to do the same… and that it’s bad for them to feel anything other than happy, happy, happy.
But what do you do with anger, frustration, or fear?
And you? What do you to keep a lid on it BUT still let the steam out?
