Just Stop Yelling!
That’s the new parenting battle cry.
Parents are trying to stop, they feel guilty for doing it, but they often don’t know how or what to do instead.
Getting angry is a normal human emotion and it’s really normal for parents to get angry at their children from time to time. Hey it happens to the best of us.
It’s not hard to go from calm to extremely angry in seconds with kids around.
Imagine it. You’re tired and frustrated already. Maybe you didn’t sleep well. Maybe you have a lot of stress at the moment. Maybe you are just overwhelmed with parenthood at the moment.
Then your kids do something wrong and it pushes you over the edge. Maybe they hit their brother, broke something, or forgot (yet again) to get do that last piece of homework the night before.
You’re angry. Not just a little angry, you’re feeling rage.
You just want to scream!!!
