Why Working Parents Are Angry, And What They Can Do About It

, ,

Calling all working parents… this article is for you!

If you’ve been working from home these past six months and have little kids at home, you know how tiring it can be.

Having conference calls and watching a toddler at the same time can be challenging. 

By this point, almost all of us have been interrupted during important meetings at least once!  So many parents have been struggling to entertain and educate their children at home while also working a 9-5 job. 

All that additional responsibility can be frustrating and lead to anger. Anger is not a fun feeling. But it is completely normal and can even be useful. 

Anger is designed to keep us safe and encourage action! However, too much of anything is not healthy.

There are plenty of mindset shifts that can help us deal with anger in healthy ways. But today we are going to talk about acceptance! Accepting anger does not mean ignoring it. It means coming to terms with situations out of our control.

Remember, not every problem can be solved, and that’s okay. The sooner we understand that, the sooner we can move on.

We can also try and listen to what our anger is telling us and challenge our thoughts. Just because we can’t change a certain situation doesn’t mean we can’t change the way we think about it. If you’ve made it this far, you’re already on the right track! You may be feeling a little apprehensive or angry right now, but every day will get easier. Learn More
