Parenting help - anger management
I am looking for a local group/therapist to help me build some anger management tools. I am having trouble managing my own flight or fight responses when I am triggered, and as a result my patience snaps and I blow up unexpectedly... suddenly displaying intense anger (not physically violent) toward my preschooler. My heart aches for my kid imagining the experience of having a parent, who is your world, suddenly furious with you. I see my child becoming sad and withdrawing from me - and articulating a desire for space because of my anger. And, I know, my kiddo is pretty darn easy as kids go, which makes me feel even worse. I am an over-stretched, over-worked, over-whelmed parent with my own baggage, and I am I failing at my job of protecting and building my child's self-esteem, keeping shame at bay, and modeling love, kindness, and self-control.
Thank you for your recommendations.
