5 Minute Motivation – Ending the Yelling Habit (Phrase #3 to Help)

by | April 23, 2018 | 0 comments

We’re focusing this month on empowering ourselves to end the reactive & stressful habit of yelling.

This week we’re looking at admitting that we need help to help us avoid freaking out!

This week I cover the 3rd phrase of 10 from my latest article on Mother.ly10 Phrases to Say (or Tell Yourself) When You’re Tempted to Yell.

I encourage parents to take a break from yelling “I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING AROUND HERE….DO IT NOW OR ELSE!!!!!” and instead use a short, powerful truthful statement like “I need your help.”

So much of peaceful & positive parenting is based on healthy relationships and teamwork. We just can NOT do it all alone! None of us were designed to control other human beings. We WERE designed however to be strong & intentional leaders, so it’s important that as the heads of our households, we teach our little ones that success in relationships and families, takes teamwork!

The phrase of “I need your help” instead of yelling, is especially effective if you have power kids in your house. Those kiddos that I often describe as “cactus kids” (munchkins who often say “no”, always seem to want to be the boss, usually courageous, outspoken, “hard to handle”)….are constantly looking for ways to feel powerful because they were designed with a love of leadership. This is a blessing and even though often really hard to parent, a trait that we should embrace and nurture.

When we ask these kids to help us problem solve, their critical thinking skills get engaged and their sense of belonging (as an important member of our family team) solidifies, which helps steer behavior in the right direction (with out any volcanic explosions)!


DO YOU STRUGGLE TO FEEL CONFIDENT IN YOUR PARENTING APPROACH, WORRYING “AM I DOING THE RIGHT THING?”

DO YOU DEEPLY WISH YOUR CHILDREN WOULD LISTEN, COOPERATE & RESPECT YOU MORE?

ARE THERE TIMES WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR TEMPER AND JUST CAN’T FIND THE PATIENCE TO REMAIN CALM WITH YOUR KIDS?
