These are some wonderful suggestions and recommendations.
You are very observant to call me out on the subject. My sons problem probably does stem from my own display of anger resolution. I have been dealing with anger myself since I was young, and I never did fully recognize it was a problem. It HAS caused me some trouble in the past. Which is why I would like my son to learn at an early age to control his temper, or learn to deal with his anger properly.
Once I learn how to recognize that I am becoming angry I may be able to model the appropriate behavior to deal with the emotion more effectively. The problem seems to be that it hits me so suddenly I do not realize I am acting out inappropriatly before it is too late, and the damage is done.
I will work on how to identify earlier when I am becomming angry. I will use your suggestions and learn how to display better judgement myself.
Maybe you might have one last follow-up comment before I accept your answer, but I do plan on accepting the answer you gave as useful.
Thank-you so much for your response. I am very excited to try some of these techniques. I plan on getting started right away using some of your thoughtful suggestions. Our relationship is good and I cherish the opportunity to make it better, which I believe working on this issue together will accomplish.
So, thank-you once more and I do appreciate your helpful hints.
