Overcoming anger

Oct 31

A few days ago I wrote about an altercation between a mother and a woman.  Since then, I have gotten many messages from mothers about the sense of outrage and anger that they go through with their loved ones, and how they lose control, but then come to regret their actions.

One of the other customers told the mother to keep better control of her child. The mother snapped back at the woman,...
