Help For My Adult Daughter's Anger
My daughter is married to her high school sweetheart, and they have been together for over 18 years in total. They grew up in the same town, and went to the same church. Now, they are a happy family with a little girl age 4 and little boy age 1.
Both my daughter and son-in-law have always worked hard, have been good hearted, and honest. They would do anything for friends, family, or a stranger. My son-in-law is a very calm, kind person. My daughter is a wonderful woman, and is loved by many.
My concern is what my daughter's anger may cause. I don't think she realizes how hurtful she is to her children or her husband. She gets angry and lashes out, saying things that I am sure she doesn't mean. The sad thing is, she cannot take them back. I can see the distance growing between them, and the sad look on the grandchildren's faces.
Please advise me on a good way to approach her. There is a good chance she may get angry with me, and I am willing to risk that for the sake of her wonderful family.
