The Orange Rhino Coloring Page
Get your kids involved on your journey to “Yell Less, Love More!” Have your child color in The Orange Rhino (or several!) and tape them up around the house in high-yelling zones.
The Orange Rhino Stop Sign Heavier the paper the better or print on regular paper and glue onto cardboard, say from a cereal box. Use popsicle sticks, fondue sticks, or chopsticks. Make one for each each child or place in high yelling areas where they can easily grab them, ie. bathroom, kitchen, back door! Tell your kids you are trying to yell less and have them hold this sign up when they sense you are getting cranky. Kids love it and it works!
Trigger Tracking Sheet by The Orange Rhino (see below for the SAMPLE)
Tracking my triggers was hands down the best tool I created for myself to help me stop yelling. It took time and diligence but it helped me to truly see how often I was yelling and why I was really yelling. Know my “yelling triggers” allowed me to then create a plan to manage them and therefore “Yell Less, Love More!”

Trigger Action Plan by The Orange Rhino
Write down the triggers you identified during your tracking and create a specific action to manage each one. Review this list a few times of day so that your identified solutions stay top of mind and therefore more naturally get put into action! If you feel overwhelmed by all of your triggers, I suggest trying to pick just a few triggers at a time and focus on mastering those. When you have done that, move on to another trigger.
