Yelling is bad…

January 7, 2009


I know it is.  I’ve read it is.  I don’t do it often at all.  But when I do, I feel horrible.  Tonight, my two older were in the bathtub, and I was bathing the baby in the baby tub.  The volume got louder, louder, screaming, hitting, splashing water between Nathan and Ashlyn.  After several softly spoken “commands” like stop yelling, stop screaming, I did the very same thing they were doing.  I pretty much said in my loudest voice “will you listen to me.”  Instead of a shocked response from them, they stopped, and then laughed.

Oh, bad night of parenting.  Hope they’re not too scarred for life.  Maybe tomorrow will be a quieter day.
