“How do you handle a situation with an angry husband?” The ParentTown community weighs in
All marriages have their share of conflict and flare-ups, but some spouses have especially short tempers. It’s a common problem that affects many of us, including one user of ParentTown, who asked anonymously, “How do you handle a situation with an angry husband?”
Here are some practical tips on how to help your spouse deal with anger issues, straight from the ParentTown community:
Don’t reinforce his temper.
It’s normal to get upset when your spouse blasts off at you, like what Nooraini D. experienced: “It got on my nerves that I was being blamed for the littlest thing that wasn’t even my mistake nor would it have made any difference to anything that would matter.”
The easy thing to do is to argue, but we suggest waiting it out and discussing things when he’s in a calmer state. “Don’t fuel or encourage his anger by joining in his temper tantrum,” responded Idza B.
“Normally I will just walk away and do my thing,” added Jolin L.R. “If he come to me and throw temper I will say, ‘Talk to me when you are in better mood.’ Or after 1-2 hrs, I will go to him and say, ‘Are you feeling better? Is now a good time to talk?’”
