YELLING silences your message. Speak quietly so your children can hear your words instead of just your voice.― L.R. Knost
Yelling turns off the learning centers in the brain and puts teens into fight or flight mode.
Want to stop yelling forever? It’s this simple:
- No matter how angry you feel, keep your voice calm and gentle.
- Place sticky notes around the house and in your car to remind yourself.
- Take time to celebrate your progress.
- When you do yell, apologize and move on.
