Angry mother scolding a disobedient childThe Family Institute’s Family Tip of the Month discusses whether we are better off suppressing our negative emotions from our children or if we should be honest and transparent with our feelings.

From this month’s tip:

“Hiding our negative emotions decreases our sense of authenticity, defined as operating according to our core sense of who we are. Authenticity seems to be a critical component of personal well-being, whether in our role as parents or any of our important relationships.”
