Kids will always be kids. We all know that. However, there are times in which a parent finds it difficult to keep their cool when dealing with their children after the child has done something wrong. How can one ensure to keep their temper under control when dealing with their children?
Ustadha Taimiyyah Zubair explains
How do I control my anger with my children?
As parents, it's very easy to lose our cool with our children. So when you find yourself angry, firstly, seek refuge in Allah because anger is from shaitaan. Secondly, remind yourself that children will be children, they will not be perfect. Thirdly, remember your own shortcomings also, where your children make mistakes, you also make mistakes. However, try to find out what is it that is really making you angry, because oftentimes, it's not our children's behavior that's causing us to be angry. It's some other external factor, like the situation at work or at home. So try to resolve that first inshallah.
