Screaming would come under the category of inappropriate ways to express anger. There are techniques to control anger in general; however, are there strategies to manage the SPECIFIC act of screaming at another or yelling? Most parents seem to be able to control that form of expression when their children are around. When children are all grown, the incentive to be a good role model and avoid screaming seems to disappear. What are your strategies for stopping this specific manifestation of anger?

I always love your response, Janshares. Your professionalism always makes the solutions seem well worth trying. Thanks!
Screaming is good so you don't have to do it again.
After reading your response several weeks ago, Eric, I realized that we need to give signs to our partner that we are escalating. Your answer made me some up with a kind of pressure that I tell my husband. "I'm at about 87% now, Mike," I say.
Ah, yes. Peach. Sounds good. It's interesting to me at this age to realize that having kids around actually was a check on expressing anger because we never wanted to be a bad example. Now as the kids are gone, I have no "monitor" on ME!
