Parents will become angry with their teens. It is a fact of life.
But, when does anger become a problem in your relationship with your teen?
Many Christian parents think they’re in sin because they’ve gotten angry with their kids. Think about it… If we’re created in the image of God, then we have the attributes of God. God can get angry. And so can His creation.
The problem is when our anger becomes routine. Or, when we’re angry for selfish reasons that induce sinful and uncontrolled outbursts rather than for reasons that would also anger a Holy God.
James 1:20 speaks of “man’s anger” not pleasing God. Ephesians 4:26 says, “In your anger do not sin.” This verse implies there is an anger without sinning. We wouldn’t be human if our kids committed some heinous offense and we weren’t angry over it.
