Anger Manager Management

Phillip Wellman Baseball Manager Mississippi Braves Umpire Rant Temper Tantrum!  & Best Hissy Fits!

Hey we’ve all had bad days, usually not on television.  As funny as this video is, it makes me laugh at myself and how I have handled situations of frustration.  It also make me greatful my entire life isn’t broadcasted. 

I hope this video inspires you to laugh at yourself too and be encouraged to deal with your anger in a nonsinful way as the Bible refers to in Ephesians 4.  We know we will be angry, but that is okay in and of itself.  I teach my kids that it is normal to be frustrated and that you have to work through it.  If you offend or hurt someone in the process of anger, then make it right by taking resonsibility and by apologizing and asking for forgiveness. 

I try to both remind myself and teach my children also to depend on the power of the Holy Spirit for self control as mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23.  Its encouraging and challenging to realize that we need God’s help to produce fruit in our lives.   As a parent I address the lack of depending on God’s power more than the bad behavior itself knowing that a bad behavior is a symptom.  I want my kids to know that they need’s God’s power in their life and that their effort to be good is lacking without God’s power.
