Chapter 6

First rule of thumb, try hard not to get angry. Verbalize your anger, such as, "I'm really upset with you." Then explain why or talk very softly but firmly, "please don't do that again; it makes me angry."

There will be certain issues that will make you angry and not upset them, such as not picking up their clothes. They will get angry at issues that seem ordinary to you, such as computer usage or TV time. This is where limits need to be set and parental control put into action. It may mean temporary defiance; it may mean an argument or it may be accepted with conditions, such as, "you have one hour computer time as long as your room is clean."
