Goal for the Week: Quit Yelling!!!



I've been a Mom for almost 6 years now. I've been a StepMom for over 9 years. But I've been a SAHM Mom for only 16 and a half months. Sometimes I feel like I'm playing catch up in the whole Mom training.

I've pretty much got the whole laundry, cooking, bathing, cleaning thing under control. What I need to work on - my focus starting right now is to QUIT YELLING!!!

I hate that I'm a yeller. When it comes to discipline, I've never been a spanker. We do time outs. But I do lose it and yell. In my book, this is almost as bad as spanking. Starting right now, no more yelling.

I read a few articles on this. Here are a couple of good ones:
  • How to Stop Yelling at Your Kids This is a good one because it reminds me why yelling is bad. Bad for me (the parent) and bad for the children. My biggest thing about yelling is that it always makes me feel so horrible because they really don't deserve it.

  •  10 Ways to Stop Yelling I like this one because it offers specific tips on how to stop.
If I can quit this super bad habit, I know my house will be a happier place. I will be a happier Mom, and kids will hopefully learn to not yell back and not grow up to yell at their kids.

I am Tabi and this is my goal. Anyone reading this have any tips/suggestions for me?

  1. I need to make this a goal too. How about a dollar in the jar every time you yell?

    1. Shhhhh.

      Then it's 10 more minutes on the elliptical every time you yell.

      Or 10 push ups?

Have an awesome day.
