I’ve become the mum who yells. And I hate it!

I know, I know, all parents yell. But every time I hear my voice raised I cringe. I always feel mummy guilt but sometimes they just don’t listen.

I always said I’d never be the parent who yelled – yeah the universe laughed in my face with that one! And when I just had one kid, I didn’t yell that much. Now that I have a toddler and an infant, I guess my nerves are frazzled and I’m just tired beyond belief and its catching up with me in the form of my voice being raised.

I feel so guilty for yelling, especially when I see my toddlers face looking sad.

Oh and the universe upped it again, by making me the mum who bribes! But that’s a whole other story!

  • We’ve all done it, I know, it doesn’t ease the guilt. At least you’re aware of it so you can act on it and control it. I feel for you


  • top story


  • Ha ha ha I am the same, my Miss 10 drives me up the wall!!!


  • You’re now a member of the club.


  • I yell too but they never listen. I try not to but sometimes I just loose it.


  • Congratulations, you’ve joined the ranks. I thought I’d never be a mum who yelled. That was before I was a mum! Don’t worry the yelling decreases once they get past the early teenage age years. But save your voice for 14…you’ll need it.


  • Don’t worry it happens to the best of us!


  • all mummys yell. bt some lie about it lol


  • sounds like you need a little break hun dont be to harsh on yourself


  • i think we are all feeling the same way! its hard sometimes, and although if i give my kids a certain look they know they are in trouble, but know ill yell when they get in the car! i need to change my ways also.


  • I am a yelled too. I prefer to think of it as raising my voice to get them to listen! Recently I had my son kick me quite hard in the middle of a shopping centre the day my Pop died. I raised my voice quite a bit that day.


  • I understand completely. Even now I hear mums yell at their kids in the shopping centre and think how embarrassing, then do exactly the same thing after I’ve heard “Can I have ….” for the hundredth time. Don’t be too hard on yourself, you are only human.
