Tips When Parenting An Angry Kid

Parenting an angry kid is no joke.  There’s nothing fun or funny about it. 

What makes matters worse is the reality that we live in a world that says that “poor” behavior is always WILLFUL. 

And because of this, we moms end up so frustrated when traditional parenting and educational approaches don’t work. 

Stop Getting Offended By Angry Kids

It gets worse when adults become “offended” when kids behave “badly.”  As if we should even be remotely surprised when kids act like kids?

In part, this happens because deep down, we believe that our value comes from our children’s outward behavior.

Parenting An Angry Kid

Friend, this is such a lie.   And it’s killing us moms and it’s destroying our kids.

Because most often, the angry kids are those who don’t fit in the box of the world’s expectations. These are the kids who are constantly:

  • in trouble
  • messing up

Hurt people, hurt people.

It’s true for adults and it’s true for children.

    • Do their math,
    • Clean their room,
    • Brush their teeth,
    • Finish their video game, etc… 

Raising An Explosive Kid In The Church

Within the church community, we moms have an extra level of pressure because we are continually reminded that ANGER is SIN.

It follows then that we mommas had better nip that “anger” in the bud. And do it now.

The pressure’s on, Momma.
