Anger: Yours and Theirs

 
Share

This three part series by adoptive dad Stephen Templeton helps parents address anger in their adoptive children, as well as in themselves.

Part I Excerpt:

"I hate you! I hate you! I hate you! You're not even my real mother." Slam goes the door. 

One of the biggest robbers of peace in our homes is the destructive anger responses in our children, and in ourselves. While destructive anger is by no means solely an adoption issue, like many parenting and relational realities, it may be exaggerated and more pronounced in the setting of the adoptive family. Excessive anger reactions in your child or in yourself can leave any parent feeling overwhelmed and out of control. And if it has become a significant issue in your home, it is as if the peace of your home has been hijacked by this strong emotional response.
