A yelling child isn’t coming from a rational place. To try to reason away their anger only adds fuel to the fire. It takes practice, but you can build your ability to pause each time you resist reacting right away. Counting to 10 and pausing teaches our brains that we can pause and not be drawn into the yelling match.
The Bigger Picture
Never get drawn into a yelling match with your children. Let them know that you only respond to people speaking kindly to each other. When they have calmed down, then you’ll hear them. Never give the child what he or she wants just because they’re yelling to get it. Teach them to always speak nicely.
It is important to have conversations at the dinner table or in the car that does not involve kids fighting, parentings yelling or nagging. Purposeful conversations start a real conversation and help your family communicate better and learn to share.
