So, yesterday was Day 1 of my no-yelling challenge, and frankly, it was a pretty uneventful day. There were a few opportunities for me to practice my lack of yelling, but nothing major. I pulled out some little-used tools and got down on my kids’ level and talked quietly and calmed to them. My son was a bit of a challenge, but I remained calm and removed him from the situation and calmly put him in a place to calm down. Probably not the most spectacular parenting technique, but it’s progress.
How did your Day 1 go? We’re going to do this together!
