Is it possible to control one's emotions?

Here's a question I've asked myself about a hundred times since becoming a parent (usually when engulfed by the cries or screams of an unhappy little one and trying not to cry or scream myself): How can I control my emotions? And an even more basic question that may have crossed your mind at some point, too: Is it even possible for a person to control his emotions? Over on Big Questions Online, Stanford psychology professor James Gross, PhD, provides some answers. (Spoiler alert: Yep, Gross says, it is.)
