9. “Because they are so easily upset, we should try to hide our anger from our children” is true?
I believe this statement is false. First of all, we cannot really hide our anger from our children. Children can feel our feelings. Anger is not a pleasant experience so, of course, our children might find the emotion upsetting. If we do not talk about our anger, though, children may blame themselves or have other irrational ideas about what caused our anger and what will happen next.
I can understand why we might want to protect our children from our anger by trying to pretend that we don't feel angry. But it is better to be open about our feelings if children are going to sense them anyway regardless of what we do.
