There are times all parents find themselves frustrated or angry. We are all human, after all! Turn these moments into a lesson for the entire family. Take a walk! Together (if you're up to it) or alone, a walk gives you a chance to think through your feelings and consider the consequences of the choices you have to make. Your kids will learn how to manage their own anger as well. Clearing your head before addressing the problem is modeling appropriate behavior as well! I often take a walk with someone when I have something to talk about with them. Being alone together and walking makes it easier to talk to them. I don't know what it is, maybe because it's a captive audience or maybe because you are only paying attention to them and they feel important. Whatever it is, it works!
