a violent temper - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
A violent temper in the home harms the developing brain of the child in the same way as combat harms a soldier. Their PTSD is massively under-diagnosed. Additionally, such emotional harm influences the expression of over 900 genes via epigenetic toward poorer health - survival mode over longevity. Meditation, mindfulness, self awareness and coping with your own stress in positive ways could be the most important thing you do as a parent.
The doctors said, "A violent temper is the result of trauma brain architecture, which is a form of developmental mental illness. It can be fixed with a bouquet of coping strategies, from a calmer environment, to exercise and talk therapies. Music, dance and the expressive arts are all wonderful for gaining good insights into the self. We can expand positive role models via movies, because this is how we dream together, expanding the healing power of dreams into the community. We need to see the temper as a symptom and really tackle the cause, the need to develop a healthier brain, with multiple solutions at once."
When the prefrontal cortex isn't given the right environment to develop self control, a violent temper can be the result. We are born to handle temporary stress, temporary rises in cortisol, yet not consistently for months, years or decades. Without good role models and coping mechanisms, the person can become a victim of their own inner storms, in constant "Hulk smash" mode.
