How to (Finally) Stop Yelling at Your Kids

Podcast cover
Read more
Yes, you can kick the yelling habit for good.

You know the cycle. You ask your kids to do something. They don't listen and don't listen, until finally you lose your cool. You yell and you regret it.

Yelling is usually the result of deeper patterns. You won't stop the yelling if you don't solve the patterns. In this episode, Carol and Anne bring those patterns to light. Their tips will help you create cooperation and calm.

This week’s Parenting Practice

Next time you feel the urge to yell, stop what you're doing. Go and look your child in the eyes and tell them exactly what you want and what you expect from them and have an honoring dialogue. Get your child's confirmation that they heard you.

If you need to break an old pattern, go to your child and say, "I have a habit of yelling. I do not want to do that anymore. I want us to all work together. I'm going to try something different. Are you willing to try it with me?"

Children have 4 main motivations to not tell the truth.

Kids of all ages (and all 4 Energy Types) might say things that aren't true. If you call your child a liar, they're only more likely to lie. So what do you do?

In this episode, Carol and Anne share the four main motivations that children have to bend, stretch, or invent the truth. This episode will help you understand your child and give you the words you need to talk about truth.

This week’s Parenting Practice

If your child has not been telling the truth, consider how you have been referring to this experience. Rather than reacting with dismay or punishment, approach them with curiosity about their real motive. What's going on? Get to the bottom of that first. Then help them get what they need, true to Type, so that they feel safe and empowered to tell the truth.
