Stop Shouting At Your Kids

Shouting At Your Kids

According to research by the University of Pittsburgh, shouting instead of educating causes significant changes in a child's behavior. Children who are often shouted at have been known to display anger, aggression, low self esteem, and an inclination to depression.

Shouting can have the same emotional consequences as physical punishment. You shouldn't expect children to behave better and learn to control their emotions if you can't do so yourself. It's possible to avoid shouting.

When you feel that you're losing control, leave the child alone for a few minutes. Everything that your child does shouldn't be taken personally. Forgive yourself, and learn the lesson from your mistakes.

A child's upbringing depends above all on their relationship with you. And if we want our children to be healthy, the best way to do it is to avoid being cruel.
