Do you find yourself yelling at your kids a lot these days? Does it seem like you just can’t get through to them without raising your voice? If you’re wondering how to stop being an angry mom, then I have a few tools to help you. As mothers, we have a lot of responsibilities on our plates daily. Whether you’re a working or stay-at-home mom, you still have to raise your kids and care for the home. It’s no wonder some women find themselves being angry moms due to the daily stress of raising kids and trying to do it all. Before we can talk about how you can stop being an angry mom, we first need to look at why you’re getting angry so easily in the first place.
Why do moms get angry and lose their temper so easily with their kids?
Mothers get angry and lose their temper with their kids for many reasons. Some of those include frustrations from their kids not listening, being overwhelmed with the demands of motherhood, taking out work stress on their family, or worrying about finances. Let’s look deeper into each of these reasons.
Frustration when kids don’t listen
Sometimes children don’t follow the rules we’ve set for them. It’s their nature to push our boundaries. When this happens, we can get very frustrated or angry with them as mothers. We may even see it as a personal failure on our part, which can make our frustrations worse.
I had an extremely interesting conversation with experienced psychotherapist and hypnotherapist Janet Philbin about hypnosis, what it is, its history, how it works to access the subconscious, how it works, and how she works to heal them. We discussed how it can help me specifically and how it has the potential to also access past lives as I am getting ready to try it for the first time. We discussed her amazing book “Show Up For Yourself, A Guide for Inner Awareness and Growth”.
In this episode, Janet Philbin,L(CSW-R, ACSW) breaks down the concept of the inner child and its role in her hypnotherapy practice. She also shares about the spiral of healing, a key concept in her new book, Show Up For Yourself: A Guide to Inner Awareness and Growth. Her honest dialogue with David helps breaks down the fears many people have around hypnotherapy as a path to healing.
