5. Replace Rage with Laughter

Anger and rage are one of the scariest symptoms of postpartum depression and it can be scary for children involved to see their mom lose her temper. If you're worried about the effects that your rage will have on your children, then consider laughing instead of screaming when you feel like you're about to lose control. It might make you look like a crazy person in an insane asylum but it's far less scary for the kids. Laughter can also release all that built up tension in the same way that rage does.
