What To Do After You Yell At Your Kids
By | parenting, Parenting Tips | No Comments

We’ve all been there. You yelled at your child and now you and your child are both left feeling not so great. So what do you do next? You might worry that apologizing or admitting you made a mistake will make you look weak, that your child will think it’s ok to misbehave, that you won’t be seen as the strong parent figure. But in fact, it’s the opposite. Our children look to us to know how to behave, so it’s important to treat them with respect and teach them what it looks like to repair a mistake.

Nobody becomes a parent thinking I’m going to yell at my child. But as our children get older, they become less of the angelic baby that can do no wrong. They become tantruming toddlers, backtalking preteens, they push our buttons, and test their limits, and we yell. We yell to get them to listen and behave, and then it can start to become a habit, and something we begin to rely on way too much.

We don’t want to yell, but our children are leaving us no other option, right?
