    What are some strategies to stop screaming when angry?

    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 try to avoid people who get on my nerves. But...It's hard to avoid my own kids. If you have a big enough closet it may be possible.

    There's a technique that involves keeping Livesavers at hand so that you can put one in your mouth to calm you down and decrease the need to express angry inappropriately. It's not scientific but it's something about the calming effect of sucking on candy and the sugar that aids in anger management. It also buys you time to say what you need to say in a more appropriate manner.
    Also, watering plants is a great way to redirect anger into a nurturing activity to avoid lashing.

      I always love your response, Janshares. Your professionalism always makes the solutions seem well worth trying.  Thanks!

    Screaming is good. Just let that concept soak in. I am a professional body guard and security agent. I have diplomas and academy training and such worthless credential.
    Screaming tells me that things are either escalating or resolving. Dialogue is brutal but necessary. Venting is helpful when controlled.
    Never stop screaming. If it is really bad enough to do that. Get help. But keep screaming. Better to scream than be physically violent.

    But I am a fool as that I have been shot at, stabbed at and hit hard for interfering with domestic disputes.

      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.

    Breathing loudly and singing a soothing song calms me.

      I'll try the singing.  My husband might think I'm having a heart attack if I breathe loudly (tee hee)

    well, when parents are stressed over work matters and coming home with more problems at home, no doubt we start screaming over petty matters. Best way is to leave the house, go straight to the car porch, breath in and out to relax. Get older siblings or yr spouse to control the kids when you are out of control. If both spouse are angry, might as well lock yourself inside the room to cool down

      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!
