Parent as volcano
Yep, sometimes that thing is just gonna erupt!
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24

'Calm down, Mom!'

I am a raging mass of bad temper, stomping around and yelling incoherently. Why? Wish I knew, really. Sometimes the everyday irritation mutates into rage. I suspect it's more to do with my underlying mood than any particular transgression by one of my sons.

When my teen was small, he would cower away from this red-faced shouting version of his fun-loving mother. But his little brother never really seemed phased by me, no matter how volcanic my rage. It was never a useful parenting tool, that's for sure.

Here are some other parents as volcanos:

Mother grows a horn

When a mother snaps

Lawyer Mom snaps

I really do try to keep a lid on my temper, but I think it's a rare parent who never, ever loses their rage. Am I right? Do you strip it sometimes like me? Please confess, you could win a temper-soothing grey Parent24 T-shirt.
