There are times in all parents' lives when they feel angry or even very angry with their children or that they don't like their children.
Most of the time they manage to handle it OK, but sometimes the anger can be in danger of getting out of control. If you find yourself feeling angry a lot of the time it is usually because something is going wrong in your life, not because you are a bad parent or there is something wrong with you. You may need to get help to find out what the matter is and to change it.
The Raising Children Network has information for parents about how to manage this anger. The Raising Children Network is funded by the Australian Government.
