Managing anger in parenting (PDF 181kb)

Psychologist Warren Cann talks with 3RRR radio host Jacinta Parsons about managing anger in parenting.

All parents occasionally experience a normal range of anger in response to their child’s behaviour. But how you interpret your child’s behaviour can have a significant effect on how you respond to it.

Warren discusses strategies for managing parental anger. Strategies include:

  • responding early to unwanted behaviour
  • recognising and changing the behaviour that provokes your anger
  • looking after yourself.

Warren talks about why it’s important to be able to forgive yourself for getting angry. He also points out that a higher level of irritability and anger can signal deeper problems, such as depression, that need to be addressed.
