Our kids, our family, our life as mom--these things are supposed to bring us joy, right?! But instead they make us SO ANGRY sometimes!! What in the world can we do about that?

That Makes Me MAD! How to Tackle Mommy Anger Triggers

A few years ago I noticed that I was angry. A LOT.

Can you relate?

I felt trapped, stuck and tired of my angry self.

My kids, my family, my life as a homeschool momthese things were supposed to bring me joy, right?!

But instead they just made me SO ANGRY sometimes!! And I had no idea what to do about that.

Our kids, our family, our life as mom--these things are supposed to bring us joy, right?! But instead they make us SO ANGRY sometimes!! What in the world can we do about that?

Through much prayer and trial and error, God has grown me immensely since that time.

And now, I want to share with you what he’s taught me about anger–specifically about dealing with anger triggers.

3 Steps to Tackling Mommy Anger Triggers

1) Discover what makes you mad.

We need to give ourselves permission to identify and accept what we’re angry about.

We need to understand that what we’re feeling is real, and lay it all out on the table.

When I identified my key anger triggers, my answers weren’t surprising (and I’m guessing you can relate to more than a few of these?!) but, nevertheless, it felt GREAT to have them written down on paper:

  • ungrateful hearts
  • whining and complaining
  • lack of obedience and willful defiance
  • fighting amongst my children

2) Accept these two facts about mommy anger.

I noticed two very important things about my biggest mom triggers (and, friend, you’ve got to notice them too because they are the lynchpin here!). Ready?

  • I wasn’t in control of whether or not the triggers would come; and

  • I wasn’t in control of whether or not they were going to change (and my being angry about them certainly wasn’t helping them to change).

However, my transformation in dealing with mom anger started by accepting this thought:

I can’t control whether or not the triggers come, but I can control my response to the triggers.

When I realized that I was in control of (and responsible for) my responses, I finally saw the light at the end of the tunnel–and was ready for help!

3) Get long term help.

Dealing with anger is a process. It requires that we not only learn about anger triggers but other things, such as:

  • how to turn up the calm 
  • how to deal with in-the-moment anger when it strikes
  • what to do when we yell at our kids and mess up 
  • how to turn anger moments into teachable moments

We have to not only learn these strategies, but develop plans that are customized to our personal family issues and our own anger triggers.Can I share with you what’s working for me (and many other moms) and help you through this process?

Got Mommy Anger Guilt? Powerful Tips for the Hope and Healing You Need

welcome

You yelled at your kids. Again.

You didn’t mean to speak so harshly, but the words fell out of your mouth in an angry blaze and there seemed to be no stopping them.

Besides, that child really got you MAD! You had a great reason to yell!

And yet… bottom line, you know that your anger flare up wasn’t right.

Now you’re left with this horrible mix of:

  • justification (“They deserved to hear those words!”),
  • guilt (“I’m setting a terrible example for my kids.”),
  • condemnation (“That was a really awful thing to say.”),
  • self-loathing (“I’m horrible for treating my kids that way.”) and
  • hopelessness (“I want to change, but I have no idea how to break this cycle.”).

And the longer the cycle continues, the more out of control you feel, right?You got angry at your kids. Again. You didn’t mean to speak so harshly, but the words fell out of your mouth in an angry blaze and there seemed to be no stopping them. It’s happened before. Too many times to count.

Oh, I have been there, dear momma!

And I understand that heavy burden that still remains inside a mom (even after she’s asked for forgiveness and everyone else has moved on).

You want freedom–freedom from the condemning guilt, and freedom from mommy anger itself.
