Wife voices concern about spouse’s anger management

Every marriage has its ups and downs, but if you suspect that your husband or wife has an anger management problem, chances are that even minor disputes can escalate quickly in your home. Recently, a woman wrote to the regional news outlet MyWestTexas.com about her spouses rage issues.

“He’s always had a quick temper (like his father and brothers) but he usually could control it so it wasn’t too offensive,” the reader, who identified herself as “Ducking His Anger,” wrote. She explained that his ability to rein in his anger has lessened though – largely because his job has gotten incredibly stressful.

“Every night when he gets home we all walk on eggshells so as not to set him off […] The big thing is that he’s normally a great father and husband and so I know this is not the real him. I need help to save his relationship with our family.”

As the publication noted in this instance, a genetic tendency toward anger, paired with a family background that accepts such outbursts as the norm, can result in a volatile temper that can be difficult to handle later in life.

However, anger management courses like those offered by Conflict Coaching & Consulting can help compensate for this lack of control. Our online anger management classes have been developed to help individuals of all ages and origins learn to keep their rage in check, so they don’t unwittingly do harm to themselves or others.

If your loved one seems unable to control their emotions in this way, you may at times feel that you almost can’t recognize them. However, while anger is a natural emotion – one that stems from mankind’s natural fight-or-flight instincts – it is is also a manageable one.
