5 Minute Motivation – Ending the Yelling Habit (Phrase #6 to Help)

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

This week we’re looking at how to combine play with asking for what we want (instead of telling our kids what we DON’T want!).

Check out this week’s 5 Minute Motivation video where I cover the 6th 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 teach kids through play what it looks like to “stop on a dime” or FREEZE as well as how important it is that we switch up our language so we’re asking our kids for what we want.

Having family dance parties and incorporating the “FREEZE game” is a fun way to teach kids why it’s so important to listen quickly!

Trading in yelling statements like this one:

“NOOOOOOOOOOO! What are you thinking???? I said NOOOO … DO NOT DO THAT!”

for a quick, playful and intentional new phrase:

“FREEZE…I need you to pet the dog gently so he doesn’t get hurt!”

or

“FREEZE…Please keep the shovels on the ground so sand doesn’t fly in your sister’s eyes!”

or if something’s already happened that you’re fuming about:

“FREEZE…I need everyone to take a calming-break right now…Mom needs a minute to calm down!”

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