When we began this series, so many of you said that the biggest struggle you face in mothering is not getting angry and along with that learning to be patient.
I am certainly no expert, and I only hope and pray that the resources that I give you are an encouragement. First off, as you begin to see the significance of mothering and embrace that, and then work at overcoming the 3 obstacles we have talked about, these things should significantly cut down on the struggle.
But, what about when you’ve done all of those things and you still feel like exploding? My best advice is to be constantly in prayer. My prayer life has grown significantly since becoming a mama! I realize now that I have no strength of my own and everything I need in the moment comes from him.
So what do you do in the moment, when you are angry and want to take it out on your child? Give grace in the moment. I wrote this post for The Better Mom a few months ago and using this as a guideline in the moment of my frustration has greatly helped me!
So, I decided to make it into a printable and the amazing Beth from Beth Stone Studio created this printable complete with some of her original artwork! I hope you love it as much as I do!

And the best series I have ever seen on the topic of anger is from my friend, Christy at One Fun Mom. She has lots of posts, practical advice, and Biblical help for those of us who struggle with anger. Go read her series, Anger and Children!
