I came across my diary and found out that exactly today 4 years ago my son (who is now 8) told me

" mommy, do you know that when you are yelling at me you made my heart bleed and have a hole. If you yell at me often then my heart will crack broken into pieces and one day my heart will get gone."

it was very simple explanation yet, touching and powerful. Before you get mad think about their little hearts.

Oh my goodness, that is precious. He was so good with his words for a 4yo. Such a great thing every parent should be reminded. Thank you.

I would have too. Those are powerful words, especially from such a tiny soul.

That's cute, but sometimes you have to yell. If you had a 12 year old daughter, then you'd understand. It's a bit harder to yell and be firm with a four year old. They're very cute at that age.

I don't "have to" yell at my 12 year old daughter. What compels you?

I guess you're a way better parent than I am.

Not all 12 year olds are alike you know.

Haaa! Not all parents are either. jk. I was actually serious. If you don't want to yell, can you think of anything else that is effective? I mean if you want to yell, have at it. But if you don't, the onus is on you to figure something else out. There is no human on this earth, child or not, who compel us to behave in ways we don't want to.
