We all yell sometimes! It can be for many different reasons. Some maybe doesn’t think it has a bad affect, they are only releasing some steam.
No one likes to be yelled at. No one!
Most important, No children should have to start their mornings by being yelled at. Going to school feeling miserable, stomach ache, nervous not getting to the bathroom on time.
No other children on the school yard understands why the sadness, or frustration in the kids face. They didn’t hear him being yelled at in the car, before being dropped off by school.
The child’s inner voice feeling rejected, worthless, hurt, stupid.
The teacher doesn’t know what’s going on. Maybe the child will be labeled for something that’s not accurate. Lazy, dreamer, trouble maker, meaner!
How would we feel if our boss or neighbor yelled at us? How would we go through our day?
What would your inner voice tell you?
If and when we lose it, apologize and talk about it to the child. Admit that you acted wrongly. Talk about a solution calmly and invite your child to come up with a solution too.
Don’t forget that hug, and eye contact.
Eyes never lies.
Sparkle love to your own heart, breath, and sparkle double extra to your child’s heart(s)
