Do you find yourself shouting and realising that you're not actually making the situation better, but you can't seem to stop yourself?

Are there times when you feel completely justified in your anger & frustration at your kids? But then you realise that the whole situation is just getting worse rather than better.
Do you wonder what you could do instead?!

In this week's episode I share an incident that happened in our family before school one day when everyone was in that cycle of anger, frustration, aggressive behaviour & shouting. And how I managed to turn it around to love, playfulness, laughter & cuddles in a split second.

I also talk about how your anger & frustration is completely justified. There's no need to berate yourself with how you're feeling. Know that you're not alone!
Also understand more about what's going on in your child's brain so that you can respond in a way that's much more effective than shouting & punishment.
