“Anger management issues need to be addressed,” says Sedacca. “Fortunately there are tools, skills and strategies we can use to change our state of mind, catch ourselves before our anger explodes, harness our anger in more productive directions and create more inner peace. Learning these skills will improve our relationships with everyone – especially our children and former spouse.”
Sherman adds, “It is important to recognize signs to watch for in our behavior and identify “red flag” warnings in advance before we explode out of control. With intention and practice, we can learn healthier ways of expressing anger, frustration and other difficult feelings which will make for more rewarding life experiences. We can still get our needs met, but without the struggle and negative consequences.”
Michelle Muncy, CEO of OnlineParentingPrograms.com, says, “The courts asked us to add these Anger Management programs to our list of online parenting classes and we were happy to oblige. We all get angry. But when we cannot manage our anger, it can affect the well-being of those close to us. When our anger is focused on our spouse, former spouse or our children, it can reach dangerous levels. We’re proud to be offering these excellent classes online.”
According to Sedacca, there are several questions we can ask ourselves which will identify whether we have an anger management problem. Many of these questions are listed on the OnlineParentingPrograms.com website page that discusses the two Anger Management Classes.
