I just want to share that I believe when parents lose their patience with children and have a quick temper, it sets a bad example for our children. And then we wonder why our children have difficulty being patient and getting angry easily. The parents taught them this by example. Telling our children to control their anger while we ourselves are not doing it is ineffective. Also, our children will wonder about our Christian testimony if we act one way at church, than at home behind closed doors the situation is the opposite. Our children will view us as hypocrites.
