Angry Children, Worried

Anger is a natural human emotion, one of many responses individuals can express when they are prevented from reaching their goals.  Given that anger is an emotion expressed by all human beings, it seems logical to conclude that there is nothing wrong with feeling angry.  The problem occurs when anger either consciously or unconsciously leads to inappropriate actions or behavior . The problem, then, is not being angry but choosing to deal with angry feelings in an ineffective way.  How do you respond when you’re angry?  How did your parents respond when you were a child?  Did they punish you when you expressed anger?  Did they shame or blame you?  Do you have a tough time dealing with anger because your parents didn’t know how to deal with it?  Childhood experiences powerfully influence the way parents express anger and teach their children to manage anger.
