I hate yelling at my kids, although certain situations for sure warrant a raised voice. I feel that almost always, getting sucked into the their emotion and loosing my cool makes things worse.
What do you think and what are your alternatives, if any, to discipline without screaming at them?

I've always believed in spanking but thought that screaming is abuse. I was screamed at, and spanked, and let me tell you I hated the screaming a lot more. It always made me ansy as an adult and prone to screaming myself. This isn't a bash babes, just saying my experience. I think that both encouraging good behavior AND punishing bad behavior is the way to go. How old are your children? Are you against spanking? Have you tried time outs? My kids are still young so I don't practice taking their things away. They don't understand that yet.

:) Yep, everyone is different. That's why I wanted to make it clear that I wasn't bashing you. Every family is different, and works differently.
