Kids are a byproduct of their environment. They will pick up on your vibration, good or bad. In other words, they mirror their situation.

If you can’t get yourself under control, don’t expect your child to. There is a very good saying from Rumi.

“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

When you are shouting it is as a result of a build-up of anger in your body. Usually, we sweep things under the carpet, rather than deal with them. This results in an eruption.

By holding things in, the build-up results in saying and doing things we regret as a result of our stressed-out state.

She says in her article that most Parents don’t wake up with the intention to yell at their kids. With daily distractions and compounding situations, we can take our eye off the ball and slip into bad habits.

There’s something in it for you too if you can hold back the barking. Parent guilt comes in spades and so the cycle continues.
