Great tips — I often read info re: dealing with young kids because it can apply to some behavioral issues with our elderly relative, who lives with us. So thanks!

Great tips here, Alicia! Anger is such a common problem; so much so that it’s often easy to overlook in ourselves and in our children. Thank you for highlighting this issue so wisely, and for sharing it with us at Grace & Truth!
