  • All the time. Nothing I do will stop my two year old from repeatedly doing things I tell her not to, but she will at least stop temporarily when I yell. Some days she's great, some days she just wants to get into everything and do everything she's not supposed to do.

  • I can't say I always use my inside voice with them. Only on occasion.

  • I get frustrated sometimes and yell , afterward I feel so bad. I was always yelled at as a child and it made me feel sad. How can I stop so that I don't make my kids feel the way I felt?

  • Sometimes...but only when I'm at my wits' end. I feel bad about it too.

  • Sometimes I lose my temper and yell at them, if I later feel it was unjustified I'll apologize to them and I try not to do it again. Honestly I have been getting better about that kind of yelling. But other times I just raise my voice to tell them to stop doing what they're doing when I can't physically remove them from the situation, like when I'm holding the baby and I hear the three year old playing with the toilet.

  • I honestly never have to yell at my kids. I have a "stern voice" that I use, but I don't raise my voice. I don't feel like I should have to. If it gets to the point where their behavior is upsetting me that badly, it's group time-out.
