The behavior of young children can be confusing and draining. They do the opposite of what we ask them to do. They are impulsive, throwing things or having a meltdown over the smallest things.
After so many incidents, we just can’t take it anymore and we respond in kind by having our own grown-up tantrum. Yelling, punitive punishments, and knee-jerk reactions are all ways we mirror our children’s poor behavior. No one wants to be that parent, but we’ve all done it.
This guide will give you practical ways to break the yelling cycle with the stoplight reminder, 3 Minutes from Upset to Peace, and the 5-4-3-2-1 Grounding Technique.
You will also examine the specific ways your children trigger your anger and make a plan to reduce those triggers so you find yourself yelling less.
Included, you will find journal pages to help apply what you've learned, as well as printables to post wherever you need reminders to help you stay calm when your children are pushing your buttons.
If you're ready to break the yelling cycle and experience calmer tomorrows with your family, you need this guide!
