What if I get so angry I hit my child?

Question:

What if I get so angry I hit my child?

Answer:

Apologize immediately and tell your child that what you did was wrong. Try to identify what made you angry enough to hit your child. If you know what your hot buttons are, you can make a plan for taking a time-out to cool down the next ​time you're in a similar situation. You should also consider seeking help from a professional counselor or therapist.
