How to Start Yelling Less and Loving More TODAY

Hi everyone! This is a quick post. I just learned that our community was mentioned in an article about yelling featured on www.today.com (NBC news!) As a result, I know that a lot of new people are coming here, no doubt looking for guidance on how to change, hope that he/she can change, and support to change! So…

Welcome! I wanted to put up some quick links to help our new Orange Rhinos get started – and to help anyone else feeling like he/she needs a re-start today! This is by no means a complete list but I hope it will help you get started.

INSPIRATION: Here is my Epiphany that helped me realized it was time to change and that I could change because I already knew how to not yell. Click here. 

GUIDANCE: I had no formal plan when I started my journey to stop yelling, but as I reflected upon the year, I realized that I loosely followed these 12 steps. Click here to get yourself started and by the way, you already did step 1 so congratulations! “12 Steps to Stop Yelling at Your Kids”

HOPE: Here is one of my favorite stories that proved to me that not yelling has major upsides. I think of this story often when I need to cool down. Click here: “Is Not Yelling Worth it?”

Even more HOPE: This is a funny, totally casual look at the journey to yell less. Not only did I know I could not yell because I never did in public, but I also realized that there are several other things I have taught myself in life that required the same actions need to not yell.

  1. I came here via the Today show also. Not yelling at my kids is something I really want to work on but is so hard. I so don’t want my kids to remember their childhood as mom always yelling at them. But being a parent is one of the hardest jobs ever and I have done a lot of jobs. I am going to work on the yelling this year and hope to improve it. I know it is going to be hard but it has to change-I have to change. And I know it will be better. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I have been reading your blog for awhile, and I have a HUGE respect for what you are doing–both in your family, and here on the blog sharing with your readers. It takes tremendous strength and courage to go through with your mission. I am a mother of four, and I feel you– every word you said!
    I wanted to mention my blog here, and I hope you find a minute to visit. I write about my experience maintaining balance in daily life with four kids. I focus on healthy eating, exercising, organization–in a doable, down-to-earth format (at least I think it is doable:). I am not particularly crafty, but I need to feel in control of my household so not to blow up. I will be so happy if you find some useful tips in my posts. Here is my recent post http://milasmilieu.com/2014/03/06/how-to-get-it-all-done/
