The Orange Rhino – Yell Less Love More

About The Orange Rhino®

Hi, I’m so happy you are here! I’m Sheila also known as The Orange Rhino® or as my four boys (ages 17,15,14 and 12) call me, Moooooom!

This wonderful community started years ago when I created The Orange Rhino Challenge® to go a year without yelling at my sons, they ages five and under. I succeeded and actually went 520 days straight – but that wasn’t what I was most excited about. All the tools I taught myself to yell less, and all the insights I learned and embraced, helped me love my life, myself, and time with my kids more.

Today the real The Orange Rhino Challenge® is to keep that love going because let’s be honest, life can be hard sometimes, wicked tough even! Not only that, I’m human and it’s a challenge to always respond with warmth and love, especially when life ain’t so awesome!

I know how it feels when life charges right at us – been there, done that, came out the other side more times than I can count. But that wasn’t always true. I used to get stuck in the muck of life and when I did, I missed out on living the full life I wanted and I yelled out at those I loved. 

Life and parenting can be hard and I hope to help you handle it with more ease. I’m not here to give you more “to-do’s” or heavy advice. Nope, not at all. I’m here to help you feel a little bit brighter, lighter, and stronger, so when the challenges do come along, you are in a goodish enough play to be able to keep moving forwards and not get stuck in the muck.
