I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how horrible and how much of a bad mum I feel like everytime I’ve yelled at the kids (no obscenities, just unnecessary, point not getting across, gives me a headache sort of stuff that clearly is not working). My girls are not terrors or even excepetionally”naughty’ kids, turns out mum is probably extra tired at the moment, quite run down, getting crook, has an overcomplicated life and is not keeping her cool very well. Truth is, in public I’m actually a great cool, calm and collected mum and my friends praise me for it but why do I yell at home…
Well, my husband (who works downstairs so hears what really goes on during the day) has obviously noted the recent change to my volume and to his credit (very very brave and slightly naive of him) emailed me a link from a very wise blogger.
If you yell at the kids and feel bad about it have a read of the below link and other parts of her blog. I already feel better having read this and am going to start my own personal anti yelling orange rhino challenge because I’m sick of feeling post blow up regrets.
I hope others get a little something out of this too!
