Understanding Anger (The Science)

What is anger?

We’ve all felt it at one time or another, and most of us understand that it’s a reasonable, human response. But how does Science define anger? What does it look like in our children? How can we recognize it? More than that, how can we understand what’s happening in our minds and bodies when we get mad, and how can that translate to helping our children?

That’s what I’m going to attempt to settle for us in today’s episode. Learn more about how anger works, the response it creates in our bodies, the cycle our emotions take when we experience it, and how it relates to other emotions in this short, but information-packed episode.

Today’s show is brought to you by our newest Prayer GuidePraying God’s Word for Your Angry Child, by Tricia Goyer. Praying for your angry child is essential because it is a way to invite God into your child’s life. As parents, we want the best for our children. We can read books, attend therapy sessions, and try different techniques. Ultimately, we are still determining what we can do. However, when we pray for our children, we ask God to intervene. We acknowledge that we cannot fix everything independently and surrender our children to God’s care.

Praying for your angry child doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming, it just has to be done.

With biblical teaching on anger, scripture-inspired prayers, and space to journal using our Think, Pray, Praise method of daily prayer, this digital prayer guide is perfect for the busy mom who needs God to move in the hearts of her kids. Learn more here.
