  • I don't yell at my child all the time. I have once or twice because of my own issues and being over tired. I don't think it is ok at all though.

  • Yes sometimes it is needed. Anyone who says they don't is a liar and if they haven't yet they will.

  • I can't believe that you are acting like it is ok to do that. It's wrong. I mean yeah everyone may have done it but it doesn't make it right and you shouldn't be proud of it.

  • Maybe 2-3 times a day on days we're together all day. I don't mean to, but I have a bad temper. She has delays and it leads to her being very whinny and crying instead of using her words (she's three). I don't mean to yell at her, but occasionally I will snap at her. Sometimes I can be really selfish and yell at her if she gets into my scrapbooking stuff, or being rough with my computer. In hindsight, I always feel terrible, and wish I hadn't yelled, but I'm not perfect. It is something I am working on though. I know that all parents yell from time to time, but I do actively try not to yell, and I think that's important.

  • I do, I feel horrible sometimes. It's like he won't do what I say unless I'm really loud. I don't scream though
