Anger Management

Ezbit el Amir Village, Egypt


We gave one of the Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons about self-control and our reactions during anger and how to control our actions. During the lesson, Om Jendayi*, who has four children, said that she can’t control her actions with her children and husband at all. She also shared that she’s not patient with them, especially her husband because he’s not working currently because of the country’s rules to stop building any buildings at this period of time. He usually works in this field.


She said that she bought a machine that makes halvah and started giving it to some children who go out to sell it. What makes her sad is that her son refuses to work with her like the rest of the children. She tried every day to talk him into agreeing, but he always refused. One time, she was very angry and he was running up the stairs away from her, so she threw a heavy bucket at him. He was injured and had to have three stitches in his head. She was very sad that she couldn’t control her anger and, as a result, she injured her own son. Every time she looks at him with the stitches, she feels guilty. After listening to the lesson, she decided to take some time to think about what she should do before acting on it, and now she has learnt the lesson.


In the past three months we discussed coronavirus prevention, family issues, psychological stress, healthy relationships, encouragement, budget and how to spend wisely, and self-confidence. We had a school supplies fair.


In the next three months, we will cover inflammation of the nervous system, getting ready for school, failure, adolescence, forgiveness, fire aid, violence, strengthening the immune system, the role of the mother in the family and anemia.
