Remember that your child absorbs the emotion even when they know nothing of the facts. They absorb and internalize the anger. They do not have the ability to sort it into the pile labelled “not mine to deal with.” Everything a child feels is about themselves and writes a page in the book of their life. This book becomes the story they will read to themselves over and over again through out their life. It reminds them that they are good or bad. It reads out each word in the voices of the people who taught them attaching all the feelings and emotions they felt at the time until it has convinced them who they are ….and who they are not.
