How to be a peaceful parent?


I’d like to be a more peaceful parent.  What do you do when you feel like you resort to yelling all the time?


I pray and go to confession. Prayer really helps me calm down. I give my children's behaviors to the Lord and tell myself that I am going to try my best to remain calm no matter what. My prescription anxiety medication does wonders too!


That is a good question! Just remove yourself from the situation. Go for a walk. Find a quiet place to go to be alone until you calm down. The worse thing you can do for your children is confront them when you are upset and not in control.  Once you are calm, try again to discipline your kids.
