  • my husband says.. don't yell.. it's hard.. he doesn't yell at all.. its hard for me.. i'm trying to learn to just stick mydaughter in the crib .. it's hard.. keep trying i say.. LOL.

    so find something else to do instead of yelling.

  • yelling is a conditioned response that becomes habit. you just need to simply replace the yelling with something else that works. i'll guess that you are yelling and it doesn't work, so you yell some more and it still doesnt work. so you yell louder and some more...and guess what? still isn't working.
    stop doing things that don't work and yelling is one of them.

  • I have a friend who is a yeller and nothing get done because the family gets use to it.

    Put her on time out and start to talk . With in a few days you see the difference. That worked with me very fast and it also teaches you how to listen.
    Good luck.

  • gammie... you are rite on with that! My mother in law is a yeller and when she starts everyone just looks at eachother and say "yup shes awake" to be honest we just ignore her try our best to avoid her. Its kinda funny but at the same time she is trying her darndest to get things done but all the yelling is more troublesum then benificial. Im sure to wach its own and it may work for others but in this casr lol its just a joke!
