5 Tricks to Stop Yelling at Our Kids

Posted on June 5, 2013

Sometimes kids just don't listen! But yelling rarely works. So Doctor G has a few things to try before (or after) the screaming fails you.

- The first step is make eye contact with your child first.

- The second step is to speak softer instead of louder. People pay more attention to you if they have to make an effort to listen

- The third step is to speak to each child individually instead of giving instructions to everyone at the same time in a chaotic situation.

- Fourth, keep it short. Children have short attention spans

- Lastly ask your child to repeat back to you what you just said to make sure that he/she understood what you said.
