Go Yell Free #Yellfree #BlogchatterProject

Would you love to take up this challenge with me … only for 30 days and if you like it you can take it ahead …

When I chanced upon the registrations for Season 2 Blogchatter Projects, I literally started rattling my brain. Many ideas were going on in my mind. It was like a real brainstorming session for me. Ideas ranging from an elaborate discussion on GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease) to awareness regarding breast cancer to adopting a minimalistic approach in life, were some which I was pondering over. I had almost zeroed down on the awareness of breast cancer but something happened which made me change my mind.

Last month was very depressing for me. All the time I was feeling blue and this also affected my daughter. I was irritated to the core and would burst out on each and every small thing. The day I was finalising my project, I yelled at my daughter, now for the nth time that month. The minute I yelled at her she ran off from there with big fat pearl sized tears rolling down from her eyes. That day she seemed to be pretty upset. She called my mother, for the very first time and told her about what had happened. It was then that I decided to go yell free. Thus while filling the form instead of all the high-end projects on my list I filled in yell free parenting. Yell free parenting is a challenge for me as well.

Parenting anger is considered to be triggered by some of the common occurrences in our day to day lives. These could be something as insignificant as asking your child to do some work or something major. Though the issues are very insignificant yet when it is performed daily over and over again, these tend to irritate us and ultimately crawl deep under our skin causing us to explode.

Few examples from our day to day lives could be something as small as:

  • Not winding the toys after playtime
  • Can’t find their shoes because they were not kept at their appropriate place initially when told
  • And of course the constant whining and tantrums, in older children back talking and not being cooperative and not to forget disrespect!

The child’s behaviour can be quite nagging, but this definitely does not set our anger. It is very easy to blame them, but the truth is that their behaviour is only a trigger of our anger.

I have been trying yell free parenting for the past ten days now. How do I feel? Trust me, I am not bragging …

  • Firstly, I feel happy that 10 days past by without screaming, yelling and meltdowns
  • Secondly, my daughter has a big smile all the time
  • Thirdly, we take less time to do chores as compared to what we used to before I took up this challenge

I take this lovely opportunity given by BlogChatter Projects to take my Yell Free Parenting to the next level. While I take this challenge myself I urge you all also to take the same challenge. I am sure you must be having a lot of questions:

Why take this challenge

Why go yell free

Would my child still listen to me if I stop yelling

Will I feel better without yelling

Is everyone happier without me yelling

Many questions will flash across your mind, but trust me it will benefit both you and your child, ultimately

    Going Yell Free is a very innovative and yet important way to Positive Parenting.
    Most parents are so bogged down by the day to day stresses that they end up taking out their frustration on their children.
    I have seen that children blossom when we take the time to listen to them and understand their perspective.

    I would love to take up this challenge with you. Forever. However I am just starting so looking forward to your tips and suggestions.

    While I agree with you that yelling is bad for the parent and doesn’t do much for the child, what do modern parents do in the face of downright bad behaviour? Honestly, sometimes it isn’t a bad thing to yell every now and then so that the child knows he’s got your short fuse. You can’t hit or punish . They don’t understand or choose not to understand when they don’t want to. They whine and whine and cry and pretend and do all kinds of things to get their way. So in such cases what can you do but YELL?
    Don’t beat yourself up for yelling. Better than beating up the child!

      Agree, but yelling all the time is also not a good thing. Children should not have their way by whining and getting what they want. We as parents have to see that they don’t make this a habit. If we give in once then they know how to get their work done. Trust me, these little devils are very smart. I still feel that a message can be conveyed with much conviction even without yelling.
