Please, welcome Ginger Hubbard to the blog today! I’ve asked her to speak on anger in children and how we, as parents, can get to the heart of their anger and learn to respond properly to it. Ginger has a brand new book coming out next week – I Can’t Believe You Just Said That: Biblical Wisdom for Taming Your Child’s Tongue – and she is offering Raising Arrows readers a special bonus offer if you pre-order her book! Trust me, the Wise Words for Moms ebook alone makes this offer well worth it!
With a society that puts so much emphasis on the feelings of children, their self-esteem and their freedom to express themselves, it would seem that children would not be so consumed with anger these days. However, we are witnessing more and more children with all sorts of anger-related problems, leaving parents to wonder how they lost control, what went wrong and why their children are so bitter, stubborn and rebellious. These feelings and behaviors are full-blown results of a seed of anger that was nurtured and
allowed to grow rather than weeded out.
