Parents have a difficult time raising up our children. Oftentimes, they tend to let anger and frustration get the best of them, and then they channel that anger and frustration to their very own kids. This leads the parents to shout at their kids and say hurtful words to them. This heavily affects the children mentally and emotionally, as some researches would say. This makes them more aggressive, and these children would have violent tendencies in the future. In other words, shouting is bad.
So is there an alternative to shouting? Hopefully, yes. Readers of Goats and Soda, NPR’s blog focused on health and “all sorts of development around the world”, submit over 300 tips and tricks on how to discipline the kids without having to shout at them. Some of these tips are busting out the “Woofie”, giving the kids “The Look”, and going into “Grandma Mode.”
Why don’t you give it a look?
