Looking forward to it! I am a father of 2 and very curious of how to better parent. My question is around anger issues and am I able to be a loving and gentle father to my children despite having anger issues?

When one has anger issues, there is an unhealthy self concept within. When a parent has an unhealthy self-concept, they do not have a clear idea of who they really are. Their anger is associated with old experiences the parent may have as a child. When a parent is not clear of their own identity, it is not possible for the parent to see their child's identity clearly. For e,g: are you my child or are you me? this will be the parent's internal confusion. When a parent fails to see their child's real identity, the child is also confused of " who am I"? "Am I me? or am I my father?" With this confusion, it will affect the child's life deeply.
