Every parent!: I have two singles and a set of non-dentical twins. Yes, i've felt enraged with some activities, but if brought up right, this should be rare. If you believe you have rage issues, then you should talk with a family counselor and see a psychiatrist!

Stay active: Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders.
