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

by | May 7, 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 often our fear of someone getting hurt, triggers us to react super quickly (and yell!) … instead of slowing down to intentionally think about the best way to respond to the challenging situation.

This week I cover the 5th 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 acknowledge their fear and use “I statements” that maximize our chances of influencing our kids to do what we ask of them.

Trading in “you statements” such as:

  • YOU need to stop
  • YOU are always talking back
  • YOU need to stop taking your brother’s toys
  • YOU never listen to what I say

for new “I statements” that come across a lot cleaner and more respectful to our kids (causing them to WANT to cooperate with us more).

  • I need you to step away from the door
  • I would like you to ask your borther for a turn instead of grabbing
  • I need your help in getting the kitchen clean after dinner
  • I would like you to listen to me and I will listen to you

Try it out and leave a comment below if it helps you avoid yelling!
