Controlling anger.

Air Date: 07/31/12 "Whoever makes you angry controls you." Cheryl discusses this quote and its relationship to a concerned parent who gets outright angry with his son in an effort to gain his respect through fear. When you lose control, you hand your power over to someone else. Anger is a complex issue and requires a great deal of self-control. Teenagers especially struggle with the ability to control their anger as they are discovering it more in their adolescence. Parents sometimes respond to teenager's anger with threats, creating a power struggle. Cheryl discusses how to manage anger within your family and relationship with your children on this week's edition of Parenting.Parenting with Cheryl Erwine airs every Tuesday morning on 88.7 FM, KUNR, and can be reached at 775-331-6723 or cheryl.erwine@sbcglobal.net.
