Step One ~ Get real with yourself and your family
Step Two ~ Seek professional help
Step Three ~ Learn as much as possible
This book is my top pick. If you can only afford to purchase one, make it The Anger Workbook for Christian Parents. The blend between Biblical and psychological wisdom helps you identify why you are angry and how to release the unhealthy habits.
I cannot tell you how many times I blamed my children for my anger. Screamfree Parenting opened my eyes to the fact that I was losing control and had no one to blame but myself.
In She’s Gonna Blow!, I was very encouraged by the author’s honesty. Through her recollections, I was able to see myself and the impact my outbursts were having on my family. The only thing I did not like about this book was the constant comparisons to a volcano… but, the analogy fits perfectly.
Several readers have recommended Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotionsby Lysa TerKeurst. I hope to read it soon.
Do you have a book recommendation to share?
