I agree and ALWAYS told my children when they had crossed the line that had me thinking about physical violence. The only options available to THEM was to go to their room and let me calm down. This worked! I never had to raise a hand to my kids. I did however "yell", if you call getting real mean and angry in tone. Again a clue that the only defense they had in that moment was none and the safest option to them was to get out of my sight for a time. It was about MY self-control and my having made them aware from an early age that they needed to be aware that rage could lead to physical acts thereby removing themselves was in their best interest.
