105. Catch yourself reacting in anger like your mom or dad? How your family of origin affects your anger problems and what can be done about it.

Did you grow up with an angry parent? Does anger feel unsafe to you? Do you act and lash out in anger the same way as one of your parents? Do you wish to break that cycle?

In this episode you will learn:

  • How my Christian Faith affected my view of anger 
  • How your beliefs about parenting contribute to your anger with kids 
  • How your parents handled anger will reflect on you and your actions 

I share with you how my upbringing affected me and the way I handle anger. Just because you grew up seeing anger handled in an unhelpful way, that does not mean you are hopeless and you will always repeat that cycle. There is a way to change that with Gods help and support.
