Amigas, have you ever woken up one day, and it seems like everything is going wrong? You spilled your coffee; your alarm clock didn’t go off, the children were late to school, and so forth?
In times like these, it seems almost inevitable to start feeling angry, especially when your children begin to misbehave. As moms, it is our job to manage our anger while also being able to openly communicate to our children why their behaviors are wrong. Here are some tips that will help you learn to deal with anger attacks.
Take A Moment To Yourself
Frequently, we are so angry that we immediately act in the heat of the moment. However, this is counterproductive because we can say things we truly do not mean and lash out inappropriately at our children. Remove yourself from the situation so you can calm down and think about the situation at hand. That way, you can think more rationally and approach the conflict differently.
Nuestros hijos need us to be open and honest with them. If we bottle up our emotions, they won’t understand the source of our anger and continue to do the same thing over and over again. Openly communicating our thoughts and feelings will help them understand what is good and what is bad. Tell them how you feel instead of immediately reprimanding and punishing them. This will help them understand that their behaviors have negative consequences, and you will have to set boundaries.
Practicing the art of mindfulness is beneficial because it allows you to meditate and be present in the moment. It allows you to become self-aware and calms you down because your focus is on nothing else but now. This type of meditation helps you become better prepared for those days when you feel angry as it teaches you to relax your mind, which reduces stress, a common trigger for anger.
Mamá, you’re a rockstar. With these tips, you’ll find that your feelings also matter while providing a safe and warm environment for your children, no matter how difficult the day is.
