Our family has been working on implementing a family approach to chores. It has been a bumpy road. My girls' (7 & 9) ability to sass has gone up a notch over the last year. I constantly find myself nagging them to do a simple task. I'll be at the session to pick up tips to help with my personal situation, too.
My parenting resolution? Stop nagging, reminding, and yelling.

I admit that I too am a "recovering yeller." (Watch intro of this video.)
When things get chaotic, when I feel like I can't take another moment of whining, when my skin starts to crawl with frustration, my default is to yell ... loud. I know it is not the best approach, yet despite that knowledge, when the moment escalates I can feel myself letting go of reason.
Here's the catch: yelling always seems to backfire, especially with a strong-willed child.
My daughter and I both end up feeling like this...
I feel terrible. She feels terrible. And we slowly have to work our way back to this...
Can you relate?
RSVP today and pick up a few new parenting tools from the comfort of your home.
I am looking forward to participating with you.
