It was very difficult for me to stop myself from reacting in anger, just like my parents did, everytime my child got angry and threw a huge fit. I finally realized I needed to unlearn certain things I learned from my parents. I wasn't angry at my child, but at myself for not being able to control my child. And once I quit trying so hard to be in control of this little person, and managed to control my reaction to her fits, the fits became so much easier to deal with. When I was able to control my emotional response, my child learned to keep her cool, too, even when she's angry for whatever reason.
