Mom Anger Doesn’t Have to Hurt So Bad

Hey there friend, how are you doing today?

I want to say thank you to everyone who let me know what you’re interested in last week by choosing between toddler discipline or overcoming mom anger. And wow, for so many of you you chose overcoming mom anger.

I’ve had two courses in the works and so for the past week I have been working non-stop to finish off the overcoming mom anger course. Next week I will also be publishing a free workshop about building up mom confidence and that will be hitting your email on Monday!

I’m really excited to be creating new content for you and helping you grow as a mom. It’s quite the journey.

Does mom anger hurt our children?

As I was creating the course I realized how hard it is for moms to forgive themselves for being angry at their child. They feel guilty and it keeps them up at night when they know they lost their temper and said things they regret.

Everyone can relate to a time they were angry and regret the things they said or did. Anger is a really intense emotion, and we all know it doesn’t feel good to be on the receiving end of someone’s anger. (I used to work in fast food, so I know!)

Mom anger can come out in a lot of different ways, but yelling is the most common. If you find yourself physically hurting your child in a fit of rage you are not alone, but may need to seek further help to overcome that kind of anger.

As moms though the guilt we have about yelling when we are angry can be so deep because we are worried about how our anger is hurting our child.

And it’s true, anger definitely hurts. Children who grow up with non-stop yelling and screaming can struggle in various areas of their life.

But there is something really awesome that protects children from being permanently damaged from our occasional outbursts…do you know what that is?

 

A Strong Parent-Child Relationship

Yup! The stronger our relationship is to our child, the less hurt they will be by our occasional outburst.

It can be hard to forgive ourselves from our anger, and being angry at our kids definitely isn’t something we want to do all the time, but know that your relationship with them in the good moments is helping create a shield for them in the bad moments.

Overcoming mom anger is a process, and it can feel impossible to overcome sometimes but it IS possible. We have to be willing to keep trying, even if we feel guilty for our mistakes. That’s why it’s so important to forgive ourselves.

So keep investing time with our child. Make the good moments count towards building a deeper and more trusting relationship. You CAN overcome your mom anger, and in the meantime your strong relationship with your child will help protect their heart.

If you’re on a journey to overcome your anger, remember this – you need to be able to forgive yourself.

So many moms struggle to tackle their anger problem because they are filled with so much shame. You can’t change yesterday, but you can create a better tomorrow.

And you know that deep down you love your child so much and would never want to hurt them. You can overcome your anger and reach a point of CALM. I actually have a course about tackling mom anger, but first you might want to check out my FREE mom confidence workshop.

Have a great day mama,

Lizzy
