No Yell Challenge

I have been working on this challenge for years, but I still yell at my kids sometimes. I even changed the name to “gentle parenting challenge”, as I didn’t want to keep reminding myself with the word “yell”. But I still always keep reminding myself not to get angry, not to be fierce and not to yell.

I used to think and set the target that I would not be yelling when I reached 40, but I still do. I thought when a person grows older, she will be wiser and calmer, and she can choose not to do something she doesn’t want to. I am still not that person yet.

Though I am not there yet, I know I am actually getting better and closer to where I want to be. I just want to keep reminding myself to work towards the goal.

I just read the new book I receive this morning, and I found that it really speaks to me. I will continue to read and practice.

    • Yes, I do tell my kids about the reality, and I am being real to get angry too, but I am also telling them I am learning and growing, and all of us do. I am learning to express my opinions or guide in a more gentle way. I actually think and know that yelling doesn’t make things work, but connection does. It’s just that sometimes my ego or my evil self leads me to the path I don’t want to go…. 😛

    • Yes, life is short and the time I can really be with my children are even much shorter. Imagine they are going to live on their own a few years later (my eldest is 10 years old now), I really need to treasure the time being together with them. 🙂
