5 Minute Motivation – Ending the Yelling Habit (Phrase #4 to Help)

by | April 30, 2018 | 0 comments

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

This week we’re acknowledging that we need to take care of ourselves FIRST before we can take care of a challenging situation with integrity (without yelling!)

I cover the 4th phrase of 10 from my latest article on Mother.ly10 Phrases to Say (or Tell Yourself) When You’re Tempted to Yell.

In this video, I encourage parents to take a break from yelling ““YOU MAKE ME YELL. IF YOU WOULD LISTEN, I WOULDN’T HAVE TO RAISE MY VOICE!!!!!” and instead use a short, powerful truthful statement like “Wow, I need to go chill for a minute” or “I’m going to go calm down, so I don’t do something I regret here.”

Saying one of these phrases helps us to intentionally create a space between the stimulus (whatever misbehavior has made our blood start to boil) and our response or reaction. We are always working towards responding to our kids (like an EMT driver or firefighter would) vs. react (like an explosive fiery volcano).

Using a “self calming statement” helps us take action to slow down and breathe, find a healthy intention and get creative with how we’ll work with the problem at hand without giving in to the temptation to yell, threaten, hurt, or bribe.
