  • I do sometimes. I try not to... I think it just teaches them to yell and usually isn't very productive at all. But I'm human and it happens.

  • I do yell at one of my kids only after telling and reminding her 10 times of what she is supposed to be doing. Like this morning. We are supposed to be leaving soon and I have been telling her for the last half hour to get breakfast and she is still doing everything but. Yelling snaps her out of her own little world.

  • yep even though they are grown they still do stupid stuff i will admit once they passed 25 they got smarter.
    when they were younger yes i yelled at them mostly to get heard above the noise they were making. What are you poor moms to do if they say spanking is wrong, yelling is wrong. there is only so many times that standing in a corner will work ( the old version of time-out)

  • I'm not really much of a yeller. So no, i don't. Thankfully, my daughter is very quiet. She never screams or feels the need to yell either. We are a talking family & can figure out all our problems by calmly being verbal. I love it, very peaceful, & i would not have it any other way.

  • I always end up yelling at them at least once a day, I try not to but it still happens.
