If we’re honest with ourselves, almost every mom knows she can go from being kind to cranky in no time flat. When we’re tired, busy, anxious, preoccupied–okay, so anytime, really–we tend to default to snapping and barking at our kids. But life doesn’t have to be this way.

- assess the triggers that spark your angry responses
- understand your children better so you can minimize frustrations
- learn gentle, effective responses to trying situations
- and much more
