Nine Principles for Overcoming Anger Toward Your Children

Not again! You’ve lost it with the children, yelling at them and hitting the table. And you see them cower in fear or scramble to their rooms. You end up feeling ashamed and embarrassed. “What is wrong with me?” you say to yourself. “How can I get control of my anger?” In this podcast, we’re going to talk about answers to that question. We’re going to listen in on a webinar that I conducted on that very topic.

As I looked over my podcasts, I realized that even though I’d done interviews on other podcasts on this subject, I’d never made it the topic of my own podcast! The closest I came was in episode 38, where I shared a sermon that I preached on James 4:1-2.

So, in this podcast I invite you to listen in on nine principles that can help us overcome our anger in the home. If you’d like to go into greater depth in this material, check out Parenting with Patience.
