Woman are well acquainted with their mood swings. But did you know men have mood swings too? They feel everything, happiness, pain, anger and every single emotion you feel. Some of these mood swings can be hormonal, just like yours. But not all moods are emotional. Moods can be the result of energetic blocks. When you hold in your emotions they demand to be released. When you block this release, this energy goes somewhere and can cause internal issues like lack of sleep, irritability, aches and pains, but also external releases like screaming, or the opposite, withholding and withdrawal.
Dad's are even more susceptible to mood swings as their lives change when they experience the arrival of a new child, or they feel the strains of raising teenagers. Sending kids to college can cause everything from financial stress to empty nester sadness. Of course it can also cause glee! But let's get real.
Of course you've heard of the mid life crisis period where men feel all kinds of ups and downs and ask questions about life. And as men age they bump up against their mortality, their legacy, their unfinished business.
Grandparenting brings its own set of moods, not just for dad's but for the entire family.
Dad’s Mood Matters
When dads are stressed and their moods get the best of them children are adversely impacted. As times change, especially during this pandemic, fathers are at home with their kids and becoming more involved in parenting, schooling and the day to day rigors of raising children.
Fathers set an example and their behaviors and attitudes towards mood management are important to their children. The impact of stress and depression, anger and impatience clearly have a negative impact on the emotional and behavioral health of children, whether it’s mom or dad. But mother’s are more likely to dig into their moodiness, from postpartum to hormone shifts. Mom’s deal with the ups and downs of their moods all the time. But dads?This can be a blind spot.
